This medal was established in 1825 for NCO's who were serving in the Dutch- or Dutch Indies Army. The front depects a W for Queen Wilhelmina. The back the small coat of arms of the Netherlands surounded by a rifle, canonballs, flags and an axe. There's also a naval version. In 1904 de medal was reversed so the back became the front etc. The tekst says: Voor Trouwe Dienst (For Loyal Service) between 1825 and 1851 and between 1928 and 1951 it was: Voor Trouwen Dienst.

The medal shown here is the reversed type with the tekst: Voor Trouwen Dienst. Made up Prussian style.
