History


The Military Long Service Decoration was originally instituted on August 31, 1913, by Duke Bernhard II. The Decoration was conferred upon military personnel who rendered numerous years of irreproachable service. A Cross for 25 Years was introduced for Officers and a series of 3 bars were introduced for Non-Commissioned Officers, enlisted ranks, and members of the Gendarmerie.

The Type I decorations were no longer awarded after Saxe-Meiningen joined the North-German Confederation in 1867. The Type II decorations were introduced in 1866 by Duke Georg and on January 10, 1867, they were conferred upon the Non-Commissioned Officers and enlisted ranks of the 6. Th├╝ringische Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 95. They were also awarded to the members of the Saxe-Meiningen field police.

The Type III decorations were introduced in 1866 by Duke Georg and they were conferred upon the Non-Commissioned Officers and enlisted ranks who served with the 6. Th├╝ringische Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 95.

The Type III decorations feature the letter "G" surmounted by a crown and flanke by oak leaf branches.

The awards were issued until the introduction of a joint military decoration that was introduced by the Duchies of Saxe-Altenburg, Saxe-Meiningen, and Saxe-Coburg and Gotha in 1913.
