    Ernst Schneller Medalle;

    Instituted 1961. Is the highest award of the Gesellschaft fur sport und Technik, (GST) or Sports and Technology.

    The GST did pre-military training for youth 14-25 in the use of rifles, machine guns, map reading, military drill, truck and motorcycle driving and even parachuting.

    Not for sport or enjoyment, the training was done by active duty NCO's to shorten basic training time.

    The Medal was at first awarded in three grades Gold, Silver and Bronze at first on an enamel ribbon bar suspension, later versions were awarded in Silver and Bronze with the Gold being replaced by an Honor Clasp. These later versions also had the ribbon suspension.

    The KVP or Kasernierte Volks Polizei (Barracked Peoples Police) were the precursor to the NVA. The KVP existed from 1948 to 1956 when it became part of the newly formed National Peoples Army or NVA.

    This is a 5 Year Loyal Service Medal, it is numbered on the back.

    Forgot to say that, although numbered no list has come to light as to whom these medals were awarded to.
