Product Information
Specification
Kingdom of Serbia: WW1 Serbian Red Cross, 
Bronze Medal of Merit.
On the obverse: The emblem of the Red Cross,  
the inscription in Cyrillic characters "ЗА 
УСЛУГЕ СРПСКОМ ЦРВЕНОМ КРСТУ" (For 
Services to the Serbian Red Cross) and the 
Coat of Arms of Serbia.
On the reverse: The "Kosovo Maiden" helps a 
wounded soldier next to a deat Turk following 
the Battle of Kosovo in 1389 - a painting by 
the Serbian artist Uros Predic (1857-1953). 
The scene is based on the central figure of 
the respective poem, part of the Kosovo cycle 
in the Serbian epic poetry.
The Serbian Red Cross was founded in 1876 
on the initiative of Dr. Vladan Georgijevic. The 
medal was instituted in 1912 to be awarded 
to men and women, both Serbian and foreign, 
for meritorious services in assisting the sick 
and wounded of the Balkan Wars- hence it
was dated "1912-13".
This is the scarce undated version of the 
medal that was awarded early in WWI until
the retreat of the Serbian Forces through
Albania to Corfu.
