    Recommended Posts

    Greetings All,

    I have these two medals in my collection and bar their name have no information on them ... Would love to learn more about them : when created, award criteria, historical background etc. etc.

    The badge for the regular nurses of the QAIMNS was introduced in 1902 I believe. The badge for the reservists sometime after.

    Great ! The reverse of the one I have has some markings :

    W J D , which I assume is the maker's mark and three more which I think may be silver hallmarks ? The first of those three I can't make out but no. 2 seems to be a lion, no. 3 is a letter "D" ... Can that narrow down the date ?
