History


The Field Service Medal was instituted by Grand Duke Leopold on January 27, 1839, and it was conferred upon military personnel from Baden, who had previously participated in a military campaign. The award was awarded to Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, enlisted ranks, and military personnel. The Medal was retrospectively awarded for campaigns dating as far back as the Napoleonic Wars of 1805.

In 1866, the Grand Duke ordered that clasps, which denoted the campaign concerned, be created for wear on the ribbon. The ribbon may feature clasp reading, "1805.", "1806.", "1806-1807.", "1807.", "1809", "1809-1810", "1812.", "1808-1813.", "1813.", "1814.", "1814-1815.", "1815.", "1848.", "1849.", "1866.", "1866-", "1870.", "1870-1871.", "1871".

The medals were produced out of oxidised copper bronze until 1866 and afterwards, they were produced out of copper.
