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 5th Thuringian Infantry Regiment No. 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 had to already have been awarded the Iron Cross I Class.

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