    Default bronze wound badge?

    Hi there, I read quite alot of personal account German ww2 books and a few of them now have mentioned when they got wounded for the first time they recieved the 'bronze' wound badge. I always thought it was black for 1 wound and haven't seen a bronze one. Can anyone shed any light on this please. I thought maybe something had got lost in translation or something??

    Hi Jay, this will be a "lost in translation" problem. You are correct, the lowest grade was a black badge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade, when I came across it again today in a new book I just started it bugged me so I wanted another opinion. Cheers for putting my mind at rest!! Jay.

    I think some of the problem comes from the natural assumption in peoples minds of the pattern of "Bronze, Silver, Gold" in the grading of awards. I blame the Olympics

    Cheers, Ade.
