History


On February 18, 1831, a series of long service decorations were introduced by Grand Duke Leopold of Baden. The decorations were established to recognise long-serving members of the Baden military, including Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and enlisted ranks.

Initially, a I Class Cross for 25 Years was introduced for Officers and a series of clasps for 25, 18, and 12 years of service were introduced for Non-Commissioned Officers and enlisted ranks.The design and denominations of the clasps were changed in 1868.

In 1913, Grand Duke Friedrich introduced a newly designed version of awards which were modelled after Prussian long service decorations. The decorations included a I Class Cross for 15 Years, II Class Medal for 12 Years, and III Class Medal for 9 Years.

The I Class Cross for 15 Years was conferred upon military personnel who rendered 15 years of irreproachable service in Baden’s army
