Closed in 1977 and demolished in the late 1980's, the hospital was originally established 1875. During WWII the Hospital became part of the Emergency Medical Scheme (EMS). The hospital had a total of 97 beds and 30 of them were designated as EMS beds, those to remain open for the treatment of soldiers injured in the war. The badge features a red enameled coat of arms depicting a yellow Griffin-like creature surrounded by three white circles with red Maltese crosses and reads: "HOUNSLOW HOSPITAL" beneath. The reverse shows the name and date: "H. MAHLER 1944". Perhaps the nurse who wore this badge tended to wounded soldiers of WWII.
