Hello Paul,

Great of you to make this offer. I have one RN SWB but won't have it back in my hands until Christmas so will give you a shout in a couple of months.

Joe,

I've been searching for this thread for ages, well done for finding it and bringing it back to the top. I just have to find my badge and check the number on it.

Rick, the SWB is the Silver War Badge (commonly wrongly called the Silver Wound Badge), it was a badge issued to members of Empire forces who were invalided out due to sickness or wounds. They didn't have to have been taken on strength of a unit already in theatre beforehand. E.g my g grandad was ill while still in England in 1915, invalided out, would have received his badge some time after 1916 but he then joined up again and went to France in 1918 so, it wasn't an ultimate discharge. He also received the WWII version (cheap and nasty looking compared to the Great War badge in my opinion) for being wounded at Dunkirk.

Here's an (privately done) enamelled version I bought a while back http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=29138&hl=allibone and here's one too http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=28063&hl=swb* There are also a few photos of them being worn in the 'wounded' thread.
