Background Info:

These medic armbands were worn by all active medical personnel during WWI and WWII in compliance with the Geneva Convention. Arm bands were worn on the left arm, above the elbow. The initial Convention for the Amelioration of the Wounded in Time of War, held in 1864, provided for immunity from capture and destruction of all establishments for the treatment of wounded and sick personnel, impartial reception to treatment of all combatants, the protection of civilians providing aid, and the recognition of the Red Cross as a symbol identifying those covered by the convention.

A signed Certificate of Authenticity will accompany your purchase. You will receive the exact item shown in the photos above.
