    The Military medal (Spanish: Medalla Militar) is a high military award of Spain to recognise battlefield bravery.
    The medal was established in 1918 by Alfonso XIII of Spain . Since then it is awarded to members of the Spanish military service independent of rank.

    The Spanish Cross in Silver with swords (Spanienkreuz in Silber mit Schwertern) was awarded to the soldiers who took part in decisive battles or had a considerable fighting experience. 8304 silver crosses with swords were awarded.
