History


The Bravery Medal was instituted on February 20, 1915 by Duke Ernst II, and it was awarded for outstanding acts of bravery in the face of the enemy. The medal was conferred upon non-commissioned officers and enlisted ranks in the imperial navy, units in the duchy's military, and the 8th Thuringian Infantry Regiment. To be awarded this medal, the recipient had to already have the II Class Iron Cross.

The medal was produced using four different materials, bronze, bronzed war material, bronzed zinc, and zinc. It is estimated that 520 bronze medals and 11,900 medals in other materials were awarded.
