Description

The special Sister Bernadette Nurse Bear id tag is an essential accecory to your bear collection. Add this miniature replica 1914 AIF identity disc to your special Sister Bernadette Bear for that additional effect.

The metal ID Disc worn by members of the Australian Imperial Forces was designed to assist in the identification of seriously wounded or dead soldiers. In 1906, Australian soldiers were issued with a tin disc and given orders that it was to be worn around the neck (they had to find their own twine!). The discs were stamped with the soldier's name, regimental number, religion, and unit. The use of identity discs for AIF members was governed under AIF Order No. 2 issued by Brig. Gen W.T. Bridges, on 26th August 1914. The first discs worn by the AIF were created aboard the troop transports carrying the first contingent of Australian and New Zealand troops to war. Each transport was issued with blank discs, a hammer and metal stamp kit.

NOTE: LIMIT OF ONE FREE IDENTITY DISC PER BEAR
