WW2 Home Front - Hospital Emergency Service Pin Badge - Gilt and Enamel
Circa 2cm in diameter and maker marked to reverse with original and functional pin fixings. Enamel intact but with minor crazing to the white circlet.
In common with all the emergency services, hospitals expected that modern war would, with widespread and heavy aerial bombardment, put severe strains on existing resources. The Emergency Medical Service was created and under adminstration of officials from the Minstry of Health, the Emergency Hospital Scheme was also created to allow casualties to be dispersed quickly and efficently to adjoining hospitals to take pressure off those hospitals at the centre of an incident.
This badge is referred to and illustrated in Jon Mill's work "Doing Their Bit" page 95, item J1.
