    Default Soviet Wound Stripes on eBay?

    Hello, everyone!

    I would like to add a set of wound stripes to my Soviet collection. I found these two on eBay. The first set looks ok, but the second just looks like any random piece of cloth with yellow smeared onto it.

    What do you folks think?

    Also, can anyone tell me what the difference is between a yellow stripe and a red stripe? I know one signifies a minor wound, and one a serious wound, but which is which!?

    THANKS!

    Hi Joe:

    Red Wound Stripe- For light wounds requiring medical attention

    Yellow Wound Stripe- For Serious Wounds

    Never bought any of these, so I cannot comment on originality.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade, I would have assumed that it would be the other way around... yellow for minor, red for severe.

    The vendor on ebay who I have purchased most of my Soviet awards from has both red and yellow stripes for sale on his website for only a few bucks. I trust him, so I may go for it...
