It was instituted by the decision of the Presidium of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia 14.5.1957 and included among the state awards  20.5.1959

It had two grades.

The 1st grade was given to the members of the PM for their extraordinary activity in forming of the units of the PM,or showing of the the extraordinary heroism and selfsacrifice,or they were wounded during the service.It was also  given In memoriam.

The first grade in the picture left-description.In the middle of the star is the title in Czech-for Merit -10years of Peoples Militia.Dimension 4,5cm,the miniature of the first grade 1x3cm.It has a star in gold.It is the only one difference between these miniatures,when we want to differ them separately.The both awards were  made from bronze,in etue 7,5cmX9,7cm.

The 2nd grade,in the picture right  was bestowed to the members of the PM for their exemplary activity in the units of the PM.Dimension 4,5cm.The miniature has a red small star.The awards were screwing.I am sorry,I cannot show the certificate of the 1st grade.Simply about 30years ago I did not take it with the award in the family.There was no fashion to collect awards with the certificates.

Honour Badge-Exemplary Shooter

It is made from bronze. There were two versions of the badge.With a horizontal pin and a vertical one.The first types were numbered.I saw about 10 badges with tiny differences in colours.Dimension of the bagde-5,8cmX4,5cm.I have not ever seen the certificate to the bagde,so I suppose it could be awarded in late 50-ies and early 60-ies.

Among other decorations of the Peoples Militia we can rank e.g.Bagde Exemplary Member of Peoples Militia ,or the bagde with the target,but I do not know  the exact name of the bagde.Shooter,The Best Shooter,...?

I do not have these badges in in my collection so I stole the pictures from the internet.
