    Fire Service Cross first class, I think the same as wartime version, they just did not affix the centre disc containing the swastika on this new form...........

    Now in hand ! Beautifully enamelling ! a nice looking medal, great design, looses nothing IMO w/o the swastika..........a lightweight piece, weighing in at only 16 grams ! it comes complete with a short piece of what looks like period ribbon.
    The award has unfortunately been glued to a display card, remnants of both red card on rear of ribbon and glue on rear of medal..........
    Prost ! Steve.

    Gents......here's a couple of "out takes", the enamel is so shiny I had to retake some of the images due to reflections on the medals enamel surface !
    Prost ! Steve.
