Fire Brigade Medal Second Class w/Ribbon-This was awarded to both active and volunteer firefighters, as well as fire administrators for 25 years service, to be worn on the medal bar on the left breast. It is a 1 5/8” cross, with a center motif of a black swastika on a white field circled in black. Projecting from the center and along the arms of the cross are red flames on a white field. Between the arms of the cross are the words “Für Verdienste im Feuerlöschwesen” (“For Merit in the Fire Brigade Organization”). All of the medal portions are in nickel silver, with a plain reverse. This also has a full-length section of the original purple/red/white/red/purple ribbon. Great condition and the real deal!
