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 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.

    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian

    • I don't really drink that much these days, but there is something about a hot cup of Char that can't be beaten when you are cold wet and miserable. Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
