The Wound Badge (Verwundetenabzeichen) was a military decoration awarded to wounded or frostbitten soldiers of the Imperial German Army in World War I. It was ultimately one of the most common of all decorations, yet also one of the most highly prized, since it was earned "as a mark of honour for all who have risked their lives for the Fatherland and have been wounded or maimed. Silver (2nd class) for being wounded three or four times, or suffering loss of a hand, foot or eye from hostile action (also partial loss of hearing), facial disfigurement or brain damage via hostile action.
