Military Decoration for Wounds and Injuries
Estimated market value:
The Military Decoration for Wounds and Injuries was established by the Minister of National Defence in 2012 as a replacement for the previous Decoration of Honour for Wounds and Injuries. It is awarded to members of the Polish Armed Forces in recognition of injuries that were incurred as a result of service in military campaigns.
Injuries are represented by silver stars on the ribbon bar. Only one injury is recognised per campaign, regardless of the number of injuries incurred at once and regardless of the severity of the injuries. A maximum of three stars may be worn on a single bar.
