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. The I Class Bar was for 21 years. The II Class Bar was for 15 years and the III Class Bar was for 9 years.
