Wound Badge Evolution

Recommended Posts

Well, this "late" type 4.1 looks exactly like "early" type 4.1 to me.

January 20 is not late enought?!

In that case we have another type 4.1 badge that was issued on November 30, 1945.

After the war!!!

Badge number 66914!

Issued to Private 1st Class Kuwahara Susumu

Do you mean another wounded association badge or its prototype - military merit badge?

If the former then all badges (that I saw) have blue enamel.

If we are talking about the prototype then the color of the enamel should be red ;)

I mean not the red enamel prototype, but another wounded association badge in green colour.
