1931 Latvian Firefighter's Association commemoration medal (Latvijas Ugunsdzēsēju Savienības) white metal medal.
Pre WWII and the dates suggest strongly that this is a medal to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Latvian Fire Service.
The cross gammée, that appears on this medal is present in many cultures as a symbol of good luck (something any brave fireman needs). Its use on this medal has no connection with the German National Socialists.
Obverse: with a fireman’s helmet imposed on a fireman’s axe, pole, rope and other equipment on a bed of oak leaves, a bar inscribed ‘VIENS PAR VISIEM – VISI PAR VIENU!’ (With some poetic license, ‘All for one and one for all!’), a cross gammée below, dated ‘1921 1931’.
Reverse: an oak branch with a central bar imposed inscribed ‘LATVIJAS UGUNSDZĒSĒJU SAVIENĪBAS’ (Union of Latvian Firemen), three crosses gammée to either side.
