History of the brassard
In order to comply with the Geneva Convention and Army Regulations a Medical Brassard was introduced November 25, 1924 for general wear by all medical personnel active in the field. As was the case with other armbands, this one was also to be worn on the left sleeve, above the elbow. It represented a red percale cross (3 inches x 3 inches) stitched on a white rectangular cotton (4 inches x 18 inches) armband, which was fixed to the clothing by a large safety pin.

On 16 June 1944, it was confirmed by the Chaplain Section, Headquarters, Communications Zone, ETOUSA, that Chaplains and Chaplains’ Assistants, Enlisted Men and Warrant Officers, who were concerned exclusively with the removal, transportation, and treatment of the sick and wounded, were permitted to wear the Medical Department GC Red Cross brassard.
