    Hi Ty, you can see the design of the Cross here: Ehrenkreuz der Bundeswehr für Tapferkeit

    Cheers, Ade.

    IMO the 1914 and 1939 designs were the best. They should of reinstated the Iron Cross. Allthough to be honest the more I look at this medal the more I like it...

    Agreed nick, the traditional Iron Cross is difficult to overlook. That being said, as time goes by, I'm sure it'll grow on us ;-)

    "The Bundeswehr has now become an expeditionary force committed to the cause of peace. Hence it is appropriate to recognise special achievements on the part of soldiers. Special demands are placed on them, as they risk life and limb on operations"

    Their achievements are indeed special, so why don't they place the winner's name on these (and other modern) awards when they're handed out in such relatively small quantities? I'm ex-military myself and often wondered why....
