    Can someone post a picture or 2 of Wound Stripes?

    I heard that wound sripes were brass and were worn on the sleeve. Not sure if it is true.

    Can someone clear this up for me?

    See this site's forum on WWII uniforms ---- "battledress wanted". A collector (Michael R.) posted photos of an Essex Scottish battledress in his collection with two wound stripes clearly visible.

    Thank you,

    Now to find some. I can see where they werre removed from my Seaforth battledress. Couple of holes so I think they were brass.

    Brass type of wound stripe has a metal backing plate. I have one on original BD blouse of CANLOAN Lieut Jim Erskine of 2 South Staffords (airborne glider troops) who was wounded at the Battle of Arnhem in September 1944.

    I have the WWII-1965 Seaforth history by Dr. Reg Roy. Have you a name for your Seaforth blouse? I can look him up for you. I have also just retired as Curator of The Seaforth Highglanders of Canada Museum (which I started in 1972).
