History and use
This badge belonged to World War 1 veteran Major Charles William Scott French, service number 5048.

Many community-based organisations were formed to help service personnel and their families recover from the effects of World War 1. The Incapacitated and Wounded Sailors and Soldiers Association Qld was formed in 1930 for members of the British or Australian expeditionary forces classed as medically unfit on or after discharge. Like many other such groups, the IWSSAQ was run by servicemen to represent the interests of affected service personnel in matters such as pensions and employment. French joined the Incapacitated and Wounded Sailors and Soldiers Association of Queensland in 1938.
