Title Kriegshilfsdienst Kreuz
Nationality German
Period c 1916-24
Sold

This medal was awarded to rear area civilian personnel, such as nurses and doctors for war effort assistance. On the obverse of the medal, there is the cypher of Kaiser Bill, namely 'WR' with a crown above. I suppose the nearest English equivalent was the first issue of the Medal of the British Empire in 1917.

It has all its original dark grey zinc finish and a reasonable piece of slightly dirty period ribbon, which would improve with a little careful washing.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

testimonials

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.
