History


The Medal was established by King Friedrich Wilhelm II and it was conferred upon Non-Commissioned Officers and soldiers who had rendered distinguished service within campaigns.

The Medal could be stripped from a recipient for cowardice, desertion or theft.

The Gold Medal was awarded to Non-Commissioned Officers.
