Gilt bronze badge in buckle (Schnalle) form; the face with a vertically hatched ground with the crowned arms of Bavaria centrally with a fireman’s helmet and crossed axes and ladders below, imposed on a horizontal plaque inscribed ‘XXV jähr. Dienstzeit’; the reverse plain with maker’s mark ‘WEISS & Co’; on original faded ribbon, now lacking pin for wear.

The Decoration was instituted by King Ludwig II on 24 June 1884 ‘Für diejenigen Mitglieder einer freiwilligen Feuerwehr, welche durch fünfundzwanzigjährigen treuen und eifrigen Dienst sich ausgezeichnet haben’ (For those members of the voluntary Fire Service who have given 25 years’ service characterised by loyalty and zeal).

The Decoration was suppressed at the end of 1918 and had not, in fact, been awarded since 1915.
