History


The Wilhelm Ernst War Cross was established on June 10, 1915, by Grand Duke Wilhelm Ernst. The Cross was conferred upon military personnel from Saxe-Weimar who demonstrated bravery and merit during the First World War.

The award was primarily awarded to Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and enlisted men who served with the 5. Th├╝ringischen Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 94, but it was also awarded to citizens of Saxe-Weimar who served with other German units during the war. In order to receive the Cross, a potential recipient must have already been awarded the Iron Cross I Class.

The Cross was worn on the left side of the tunic beside the Iron Cross.
