Product Description

In the case of wounded personnel, essential basic medical information for the treatment, such as blood type and history of inoculations, it typically also shows religious preference. Dog tags are usually made from a corrosion-resistant metal or alloy such as aluminium, Monel or stainless-steel, although, during wartime, metal would usually be in short supply so tags would be made from whatever metals were available.

In the US military, if the soldier has a medical condition that requires special attention, an additional, red tag with the pertinent information is issued and worn with the dog tags. Silencers are worn around each dog tag so as to lessen the noise when the wearer is moving so that they would be unexpected and do not give their position away. Some military units like the US Army make it mandatory for soldiers to wear them in the field so that they can be easily identified for treatment of recognition of the dead. Some wear it around their neck while some wear one of the pair around the neck and the other tied around the boots. From the origin of pinned paper notes with soldiers’ names and addresses to nowadays dog tag, its use as a method of identification still plays its role. These dog tags have becoming very fashionable as civilians also wear them. They have recently found their way into youth fashion by way of military chic. Originally worn as a part of a military uniform by youth wishing to present a tough or militaristic image, dog tags have since seeped out into wider fashion circles.

Our dog tags come in pair with a long and a short chain(75cm and 9.5cm respectively) of which each is attached to. Our chains are small bead-linked. Rubber silencers are placed on them so as to reduce noise made when moving. These silencers do not come as additional cost adding value to our product. Here at Active Gear Limited for the stainless steel type dog tag we have two colour silencers namely olive green and black.
