Historical Description: The Prussian Warrior Merit Medal was a military decoration established by Friedrich Wilhelm III, and it was mainly conferred upon troops that were not in the Prussian service. The award was primarily conferred in recognition of bravery and merit in times of war. The medal was first awarded to members of the Imperial Guard grenadier company, who guarded Friedrich Wilhelm during his visit to St. Petersburg in 1835. The medal was later conferred upon non-commissioned soldiers and natives of German colonies who fought bravely for Germany. In World War I, the medal was conferred upon allied soldiers who aided the German cause.
