Ancestry.co.uk have added another dataset to their Military Records Collection. This time it is documents recording the awarding of the Silver War Badge. The Ancestry website gives details of the badge …..
The Silver War Badge was one of World War I’s most distinguished awards. It was given to servicemen who were discharged with a serious wound or illness – they wore it at home so they wouldn’t be accused of not doing their duty.
Our records reveal over 800,000 injured soldiers, sailors and pilots. Find an ancestor among them, and you’ll discover their rank, when they started and finished in the Forces, the unit they left and why they were discharged.
