British Participation

Vierdaagse Cross, miniature versions.

Width: 15 mm.

These examples were made by Koninklijke Begeer up until 1976.  They are, from left to right, for one, two, six and eleven marches.

Width just over 15 mm at the widest point of the cross.

These were manufactured by Koninklijke Begeer until this firm ceased to produce items for the KNBLO in 1976.

The reverse of these crosses is either plain, or bear the maker’s stamp ‘Kon Begeer Voorschoten’.  The silver and gilt versions are sometimes hallmarked.

Where ribbon numbers appear on the ribbon, these are the same design as worn on the full size crosses.

 

 

Before 1959.

These bear the initials ‘NBVLO’ and therefore pre-date the grant of the title ‘Royal’ (Koninklijk) that led to new initials on the arms of the cross from 1959.

These examples are, from left to right, for one, two, five, six and ten marches.  

1959 – 1976.

These bear the initials ‘KNBLO’, the initials introduced in 1959.

Miniature (21mm version)

Width: 21 mm.

VanWielik(R)

Although W.v.Veluw have made Vierdaagse medals since 1977, they have not produced any of the smaller 15mm type.  Crosses of this size are however manufactured and sold by the firm Van Wielik of the Hague.  They produce crosses up to the eleventh successful march, but not for 40, 50 or 60 years.  These are not sold at the official Vierdaagse souvenir shop.

The crosses for one, two, five, six, ten and eleven marches are shown above.
