Default Gold Bar

I am researching those men commemorated on our local war memorial in the UK and one of our former villagers emigrated to Canada prior to the outbreak of WW1 and in addition to his medals he was awarded a 'gold bar'. Have searched the Internet to establish why this was awarded for but without success. Can anyone tell me why he was given this award?

BTW he was wounded and subsequently discharged from the 43rd Regiment before the War's end.

Sounds like a wound stripe.
