Despite a lot of online searching I cannot find any reference to this badge. The badges past owner, date, and serial number are all engraved to the back....the Serial Number would suggest that 1734 other Nurses had been awarded this Proficiency badge prior to this one. The badge is brass with enamel fill to the Southern Cross center Shield, white roundel, and the N.Z.M.N. part. The badge measures 1 5/8" square.
