British WW1 Kulter iron Cross medal.

£8.95

These British First World War anti-German propaganda medals exploited the German Army's excesses, committed in Belgian and French towns and cities on or near the Western Front, between August and October 1914. The legend 'FOR KULTUR' is a scornful pun on 'the Kaiser's claim to be spreading culture'. This crudely cast cross is one of a series of similar 'joke' Iron Crosses made in Britain and sold to raise funds for the War effort. Cudeley cast metal with a blackened finish. 43 x 48mm.
