Second model wound badge, introduced in August of 1938, and known as the "Shoigunjinsho." The gilded silver badge is comprised of a 15mm diameter medallion with the image of Kusunoke Masashige, a medieval Samurai and folk hero, to it, from behind which diagonally extend four spear points, 32mm from point to point, each separated by a horizontal or vertical, red enameled Samurai shield. To the reverse is a vertical, hinged, doubled pin-back device and its catch. To the reverse of each of the spear points and the horizontal shields is embossed a kanji character, which together translate as "Military Wound Badge." A further two characters are embossed beneath the pin-back device, being the rarer "Sen=sho"- establishing the badge as awarded for wounds sustained in battle. Comes in a small wooden case w gold Kanji.
