Police Long Service Medal - 18 Years
A beautifully recreated Police Medal for 18 years service, which comes with a cornflower blue ribbon.
In January 1938, Hitler ordered the creation of an award for members of the police force who met qualifications based on length of their service. The award was given in three grades to men who had served for eight, eighteen and twenty-five years. The design of all three medals had the police insignia, which consisted of a national eagle emblem surrounded by a wreath on the front, and the inscription, Für Treue Dienste in Der Polizei ("For faithful service in the Police") on the reverse.
To qualify for the medal, a person had to be an active member of the police or "an administrator" in the police service. Military service time could also be applied to the total time of service needed for the award.
The medal is sold with the small embroidered patch, which comes unattached.
