History


This decoration was founded by King Wilhelm II following the suggestion of his wife, Queen Augusta Victoria.

The Decoration was conferred upon men and women who had rendered exceptional service in the car of the sick and wounded during times of peace and war.

The Decoration featured three grades, and in order to be awarded the I Class Cross, the recipient had to have already received one of the lower award grades.

The I Class Cross was worn as a brooch on the breast.

After 5 years of service, recipients were eligible to receive the next class of the Medal.
