Wound Badge Evolution

Recommended Posts

So for oval merit badges, the design of obvers is the same. For reverse - kanji, evidently, differ depending on event?

Yes.

Do boxes also differ depending on event (year)?

To tell you the truth this is the very first time that I see a box for this type of badge ;)

Presumably, for merit badges with design of Military Merit Badge the situation is the same?

Exactly the same.

Same merit badge as in posts #521-524.

Same box.

Only interior is different... or maybe simple original was lost?

Another interesting doc for type 4.1 badge for our gallery.

This one was issued to Ueno Taichi on April 18, 1942.

He was born Meiji 12 [1879] and received a battle wound badge during 1904-5 Russia War.

He got the wound in the area of Jinzhou District, near Dalian (Port Arthur) .

Port Arthur related wound!

But not only prefectures but sometimes city-level branches and even factory-level branches issued their own wound badges.

Like this beautiful Nakajima company badge.

Speaking of "factory-level branches". 1/ Was Nakajima the only company, issued it's own wound badges?

2/ As soon as English transcription is "Badge for help to Disabled War Veterans", then who where recipients of that badges? Not Disabled War Veterans themselves?

Nakajima is the only "company badge" that is known to me, but of course there could be others.

Actually this is english translation from russian translation (second Rozanov book ;)) from japanese :whistle::lol:

It would be nice to have direct translation of the reverse inscription in post #117...

With your permission, Nick, I also would like to thank your japanese fellow Oleg for translation. So, forgive my persistence, still recipients of the badge remain to be specified. May be, it is not that somebody helped disabled war veterans and Nakajima issued badge to thank that somebody. I suppose, the badge's recipients were disabled war veterans - employees of Nakajima, and the badge was issued to express company's patronage to that veterans. ?

Peter.

    • 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 know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
    • 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
