Title Kriegshilfsdienst Kreuz
Nationality German
Period c 1916-24

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.

I have in the last six months inherited my late father Alan Swain's police memorabilia collection along with much paperwork receipts etc. I would like to pass on to you my thanks for such good dealership with my father going back to the late 80s and well into the 1990s.

The sabre arrived perfectly. Magnificent piece.
