History


The Medal was instituted by Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig and was conferred upon individuals who rendered exemplary care of sick and wounded soldiers.

The Medal was originally conferred upon Officers, Non-Commissioned Officer, soldiers and medical personnel for non-combat related military merit.

As of June 26, 1916, the Medal was only conferred upon women who were not eligible to receive the Cross for Medical Workers, and instead men received the War Honour Medal.

This Medal was the predecessor of the War Honour Decoration.
