Good conduct chevron & Wound Stripe

Recommended Posts

J T Gray

Sharp-eyed Pals on another part of the forum have identified a Wound Stripe and what is probably a Good Conduct chevron in the picture below, as well as the cap badge PERHAPS being the Suffolk Regiment. If it is the Suffolks, I have a possible ID given where the picture came from.

My Grandfather's MIC doesn't record his wound stripe. Would MICs ever record these, and would the Undiscovered Crime chevron appear? If I could find areference to either it'd help me with who the chap in the picture is.

It is not likely that GC Chevrons or Wound Stripes would appear on MiCs as these were the Medal Offices Instrument for issuing the Campaign Medals,Records of these would appear on the Service Papers if you are lucky enough to have a Man whose documents have survived.

I was afraid of that! I have not re-checked, but I did look through the Bewers records not long after they first came out and I couldn't find him. Ah well...

Thanks for th help,

Adrian
