Can be either:

Veneral Disease

Remember that all local women concerned may be infected. Sheaths and prophylactic packets are available in units etc and should be used as necessary.

Or

Volunteer Decoration

Also the post-nominal letters for the Volunteer Decoration - a twenty-year long service award for officers of the old Volunteer Force. Ho ho, ha ha. Unfortunately, there was no provision for a second award bar, so 'VD & scar' was tactfully avoided.
