ph0ebus Posted 27 September , 2010 Share Posted 27 September , 2010 Hi all, My grandfather was wounded twice per his records, once on September 23, 1915 (shot in the leg) and October 17, 1916 (gassed). His Militärpaß mentions his receipt of the EKII and his Soldbuch confirms the two incidents but each mentions nothing about receiving a Wound Badge. Would that be because the badge started to appear in 1918, and he was wounded in 1915-1916? Or would there be some other explanation? Could it have been an oversight? It seems he might have been eligible for the Black wound badge but I am certain there are folks in here who might know better. FYI, per Digger History, a photo of the black wound badge: Thanks, -Daniel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
