WW1 Three Gilt Brass Sew-On Wound Stripes Sewn to Panel of Khaki Uniform Cloth
Gilt finish still fresh. Each stripe has a double hole at each end to enable it to be sewn down. Circa 2 inches in length and authorised for wear by Army Order 249 of August 1916 and this was only issued in this size up to 1922 (discontinued for wear on uniform by Army Order 434 of 1922). Many different patterns and styles were made, but I have not come across a metal sew-on variety before. Quite a badge of honour, wounded three times!
Wound stripes issued in WW2 were only 1.5 inches in length.

Removed from uniform, brighter to reverse as one would expect, but in very good condition for age and scarce.
