Karl-Truppenkreuz

Recommended Posts

Another common KuK medal seen in the photo thread that doesn't have a good topic of it's own...

Awarded to soldiers, regardless of rank, who had been with a combatant unit for at least twelve weeks and who had actually served at the front.

I have to admit that the inscribed, original cardboard case fitted for both the decoration and the Bandspange is quite rare to see.

Any inscription or maker's mark on the lid's inside or under the case?

Congratulations,

E.L.

Well... this is the "Metallenes Armeekreuz" a.k.a. Kanonenkreuz.

The Karl-Truppenkreuz was clearly inspired by this famous decoration.

Best wishes,

E.L.
