Mobilisation War Cross

The Mobilisation War Cross (Dutch: Mobilisatie-Oorlogskruis) is a Dutch medal awarded for service during World War II.

Establishment and criteria[edit]

The Mobilisation War Cross was established on 11 August 1948 by royal decree of Queen Wilhelmina.[1] Those eligible for the award include military personnel who served for at least six months between 6 April 1939 – 20 May 1940. However, the Cross can also be awarded to non-military personnel or people who did not serve a full six months, as long as the subject performed military tasks for the Kingdom of the Netherlands.[2]

On 1 December 1992, the original royal decree was rescinded and replaced.[2]
