Dog Tag Chain History:
The original dog tags issued by the Red Cross during the Spanish –American War were worn around the neck on a leather thong cord. Before World War One the leather was eventually replaced by cloth tape cord to wear the dog tags and these cloth tapes lasted into World War Two. During the war the cloth tapes and woven rayon cords were eventually replaced by Monel (an alloy made of nickel and copper) metal bead chains which, unlike the cloth tape, were fire resistant. After World War 2, the Monel dog tag chains were gradually replaced by the standard military issue stainless steel beaded ball chain used by us and the military today.
