Silver War / Wound Badge (SWB) to a Regular - Early Issue
Impressed 286736, but sadly a replacement pin. An earlier issue, see notes below.
From a quick check this was issued to 58073 Gunner Arthur Reynolds of 30th Brigade Royal Field Artillery (RFA). A regular soldier who had enlisted on 13th August 1909, saw service overseas (an old contemptible?) and was honourably discharged as no longer fit for war service (para xvi) on 20th December 1917, aged 29.
Approximately 1,150,000 badges were issued, which had to be claimed and then approved.
Between September 1916 and March 1918, they were issued with just a number (no alpha prefix) and were better quality than most stampings. Around 335,000 of these were issued.
