Rather sounds like a medal for some of the many races, marathons etc. held. "Ostkilver 10"...hmmm...."east something-or-other ten" suggesting it was awarded for a 10km run. No idea what the east would mean, unless "Ostkilver" was a name of a town that held the marathon.

Perhaps others would have more specific info.

Ostkilver was associated with Birdwood Barracks, Bunde, possibly the German name for it after we left ...
