History


The Volunteer War Aid Cross was originally on June 25, 1871, by Grand Duke Friedrich II and it was conferred upon men and women who provided extraordinary care to the sick and wounded during the Franco-Prussian War. There is no difference between the size of the crosses that were conferred upon men and women. The difference in ribbon does not affect the price of the medal. The reverse features the royal monogram of Grand Duke Friedrich.
