A First War Silver Karl Friedrich Military Merit Medal for Bombing London

A First War Silver Karl Friedrich Military Merit Medal for Bombing London to Vizefeldwebel Eugen Stich: Military Merit Medal (1915-18), in silver, 40.3mm.   Footnote: As an Unteroffizier in Bombengeschwader 3, Eugen Stich was proposed for the Gold Karl Friedrich Military Merit Medal on December 29, 1917. Only six weeks before however, he had received the Iron Cross 2nd Class and just previous to that, on October 24th, his Pilot’s Badge had been sanctioned. So it probably came as no great disappointment to him that this lofty award was not approved and for this native Badener the required Silver Merit Medal on the ribbon of the Karl Friedrich was the one that was approved. Stich was commended by the Acting Leader of Bombengeschwader 3, Oberleutnant Richard Walter for his “many flights” against England during which it was said that Stich displayed outstanding dash and bravery. He obviously continued to carry on in the same spirit for on September 18, 1918, his Silver Karl Friedrich Military Merit Medal was one of four that was given out to men in his Fliegertruppe, the most ever awarded during the war to that arm of the service on a single day.
