Circular bronze medal with elaborately decorated ribbon bar bearing a central shield on oak leaves with the cipher ‘LS’ surmounted by a fireman’s helmet, the Latvian arms above, a cross gammée on the bar to either side; the face with a fireman’s helmet imposed on a fireman’s axe, pole, rope and other equipment on a bed of oak leaves, a bar inscribed ‘VIENS PAR VISIEM – VISI PAR VIENU!’ (With some poetic license, ‘All for one and one for all!’), a cross gammée below, dated ‘1921 1931’; the reverse with an oak branch with a central bar imposed inscribed ‘LATVIJAS UGUNSDZESEJU SAVIENIBAS’ (Union of Latvian Firemen), three crosses gammée to either side, with maker’s mark ‘E. EHRST’ lower left for Emil Rudolf Ehrst of Riga; on original ribbon.

We have not found this medal in any published source; it is of good quality and the dates suggest strongly that this is a medal to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Latvian Fire Service.
