Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • New Zealand issued Silver War Badge (SWB) - The SWB was intended to be worn with civilian clothes (it was forbidden to be worn on a military uniform). The SWB was given to discharged soldiers to prevent them being accosted by women with white feathers (a symbol of cowardice), which were presented to able-bodied men on the home front who were not wearing a uniform. This collection includes SWBs given to soldiers across the Commonwealth. A typical record lists name, rank, regiment number, unit, date of enlistment, date of discharge and reason for discharge. The early NZ issues seem to have been soldiers with NOK in England.
    Silver War Badge Records, 1914-1920. There is 814 listed under New Zealand
