War Cross for Civil Merit, III class by Rozet & Fischmeister of Vienna (Kriegskreuz für Zivilverdienste, III. Klasse, Hersteller Rozet & Fischmeister, Wien)
Silver-edged white enamel cross pattée with double scalloped ends to the arms, creating three points; the face with the silver letters ‘FJI’ (for Emperor Franz Joseph I) imposed centrally encircled by an oval white enamel ring inscribed in silver letters ‘MERITO CIVILI TEMPORE BELLO MCMXV’ (Civil Merit in Time of War 1915), a silver oak wreath threaded in front of the vertical arms and behind the lateral arms of the cross; the reverse plain, mounted with pin for wear, silver hallmark and maker’s mark of Rozet & Fischmeister of Vienna on the pin and maker's mark repeated on the upper right of the cross . On 16 August 1915, Emperor Franz Joseph I expressed the desire for an award to recognise the efforts of the civilian population in supporting the war effort and the Cross was instituted on 8 February 1916. It was awarded particularly to those involved in supplying the Austro-Hungarian armed forces with munitions and equipment. A very good example.
