    Turkish wound badge


    Recommended Posts

    Interestingly the Ottoman Empire and its successor Turkish Republic preferred to install "red wound ribbon" instead of a medal or a badge.

    It was weared on left wristband. One could be qualified to get it only after getting wounded during combat operations. In most cases hospital report was needed. For each wound one would received an additional one.

    I could not able to find the exact date of introduction of the first wound badge but most probably after 1909.
