History


The Cross was instituted by the German Union of Frontline Soldiers (Deutscher Frontkriegerbund) in 1922, and it was conferred upon veterans who served on the frontline during the First World War.

Like other Badges instituted in the Weimar Republic, the Frontline Cross was unofficial and veterans were required to purchase their own.

There were approximately 3,000 crosses awarded between 1921 and 1931.
