My thought exactly. If every civilian injured during an air raid received a wound badge, there would be literally millions of wound badges all over the place.
Also, in regard to citations, while I dont collect them myself, I am aware that non military citations, i.e. police, fire service, R.A.D. ect are rare and much sought after by collectors, and I have NEVER seen a wound badge citation made out to a civilian.
