Gold stripe

From The Great War 1914-1918

Gold stripe: The strip of gold braid on a man's sleeve officially indicating that he had been sufficiently seriously wounded to necessitate removal to a hospital, stationary, general, or home. The authorisation to wear the gold stripe was not revoked until some time after the war.[1]
