The German wound badges were awarded in both the first and second World wars and principally in three grades – Black (Wounded once), Silver (3 wounds) and Gold (5 times wounded) – however in the event of the soldiers death any one of the grades could be awarded.

Shown here is a frequently encountered Stamped steel WW1 version.
