Miniature rectangular gilt and deep blue enamel badge on ornate scroll and eyelet suspension; the face inscribed in gilt letters ‘F.W.IV.’ (for King Friedrich Wilhelm IV), a gilt Landwehr Cross to either side; the reverse plain; diameter 14.92mm (0.59 inch); on probably replaced correct ribbon. The Award was created on 16 January 1842. On 4 July 1868, the Silver Cross was introduced, becoming the first class of the award and the existing Landwehr-Dienstauszeichnung became the second class. It was awarded for impeccable fulfilment of service in the Reserve or Territorial Army (Navy) to officers, medical officers, non-commissioned officers and other ranks who participated in a campaign or as an exceptional reward for those who spent a total of three months on active conscripted service without leave (‘Nach vorwurfsfrei erfüllter Dienstpflicht in der Reserve und Landwehr (Seewehr) diejeningen Offiziere, Ärzte, Unteroffiziere und Wehrmänner …, welche einen Felgzug mitgemacht haben oder bei außergewöhnlichen Veranlassungen, im ganzen mindestens drei Monate, aus dem Beurlaubtenstande zum aktiven Dienst einberufen gewesen’). The Award was superseded by a circular medal in 1913.
