Condition: Good Very Fine

The cross was introduced on 22 December 1936 by the Minister of the Interior and was to reward those members of the Volunteer Fire Brigade who had completed 25 years faithful service in the Fire Service with the time being calculated as at 1 May 1936. This cross was to replace all the various Fire Brigade crosses awarded by states or local authorities. Recommendation for award of this cross came from the Reichsführer-SS Himmler in his capacity as Chief of the German Police, which controlled the fire departments and was approved by the Ministry of the Interior.
