Swords to the Orders and Medals of Saxe-Weimar during the First World War
 
Very recently the Saxe-Weimar award rolls for World War One were examined and evaluated. As a result of this meritorious research I like to present those numbers in conjunction with a few images of the actual decorations. 

From 1914-1919 the following numbers with Swords were awarded, according to the Rolls:

Knight 2nd Class ~1000
Golden Merit Cross 168
Silver Merit Cross 62
General Medal in Gold 464
General Medal in Silver 3888
Wilhelm Ernst War Cross 366

 

Grand Cross Star with Swords in Silver gilt
