History


This Medal was conferred upon German citizens, male and female, who faithfully served Germany during the First World War by serving in both civilian and military roles.

When the Medal was conferred upon a veteran of the front-line, they were allowed to purchase a laurel wreath device to be worn on the medal's ribbon. The laurel wreath denoted that the recipient had rendered combat service.

Since it was conferred during the Weimar Republic, the veterans were required to purchase the cross themselves.
