    Sachsen Ehrenkreuz f?r freiwillige Wohlfahrtspflege im Kriege

    Recommended Posts

    Another item from the latest trove. The Honor Cross for Medical Aid Volunteers in War.

    Instituted on 31 March, 1916 for "exemplary(?) service in the nursing of the sick during war."

    It came in 3 types; 1914/1916, 1914/1917, or 1914/1918 on the reverse. The 35 mm. ribbon was whitec with 3 grass grreen stripes.

    If my translation is correct, this is the full sized medal.

    With the Boonzaier Standard of Measure to show the size. Must have been lost on a 35mm. ribbon

    Must have been most cost ineffective changing the reverses annually... but betcha some day award rolls will turn up and at least NUMBERS will then be known annually.
