Description: British/Australian Wound Stripe - World War 1.

Condition: Very Good

Comments: The British Army began awarding a brass "Wound Stripe" in 1916, with approval by King George V. The badge was worn on the left forearm, fastened through the uniform cloth. Additional badges were granted for subsequent wounds. The badge was reintroduced in 1944 for the Second World War, and a cloth version was introduced for use with Battle Dress. British soldiers have not been awarded wound stripes for injuries sustained in Afghanistan or Iraq.

Soldiers of the Australian Imperial Force, Canadian Expeditionary Force, New Zealand Expeditionary Force, and other Empire troops followed suit in the First World War, and issued wound stripes according to British practice.
