History


The Cross for Voluntary War Aid was originally founded in 1871 and it was renewed by Grand Duke Friedrich II on December 24, 1915. The Cross was conferred upon men and women who provided extraordinary care to the sick and wounded during the First World War.

The Cross (with oak leaves wreath) was conferred upon individuals who rendered exceptional care of the sick and wounded within a war zone.

Female recipients wore the Medal on a bow ribbon.

The reverse features the royal cypher of Grand Duke Friedrich.
