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 foundation of the Medal was closely tied to the French Revolution and the war against Napoleon, as in both events, the role of the common soldier grew.

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

The Gold Medal was awarded to Non-Commissioned Officers.
