  1. Generalmajor der Marinepioniere Dipl.Ing. Franz Habicht - EK 2. Klasse - Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Österr. Kriegserinnerungsmedaille mit Schwertern - Dienstauszeichung (most likely 3. Klasse) - Dienstauszeichung (most likely 4. Klasse) - Hungarian Commemorative Medal - Bulgarian Commemorative Medal - Spanish Order of Merit in Red??? Italian Order of the Crown??? - Foreign I think the Verwundetenabzeichen is Silber Agree Perhaps one of the foreign awards could be Greek as he spent a year there in the 1930s.
  2. Generalleutnant Kurt Dittmar - Spange zum EK 2. Klasse - Lübeckisches Hanseatenkreuz - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung 1. Klasse - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung 3. Klasse - Memel Medal
  3. General der Panzertruppe Leo Geyr Freiherr von Schweppenburg There is nothing else listed in the Rank List. Perhaps it could be the Württemberg Friedrich Order?
  4. Oberst d.R. Gustav Gillhausen with 2 Hungarian Orders of Merit with Swords.
  5. I think this photo shows the addition of the Eastern Front Medal. Again, hard to be accurate.
  6. Generalmajor Hans-Joachim Rath Sorry, I cannot tell from this photo and he is not in the Rank List.
  7. Greek Order of Phoenix, Grand Cross
  8. Generalleutnant Walter von Gündell with Croatian Order of King Zvonimir
  9. Generalleutnant Walter von Gündell  - Spange zum EK 2. Klasse - Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse - Fürstl. Lippisches Kriegsverdienstkreuz - Fürstl. Schaumburg-Lippisches Kreuz für treue Dienste - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung 1. Klasse - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung 3. Klasse It's possibly KVK without swords? It's hard to tell. It's not a WW1 award as the RL has what's above. Happy New Year to you also.

  12. General der Flieger Gustav Kastner-Kirdorf - EK 2. Klasse - Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern - Ritterkreuz des Königl. Preuss. Hausorden von Hohenzollern mit Schwertern - Königl. Bayer. Militar-Verdienstorden 4. Klasse mit Schwertern - Ritterkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern des Königl. Sächs. Albrechts-Orden - ??? - Grossherzogl. Hessische Tapferkeitsmedaille - ??? - ??? - Hounour Cross? - Kaiserlich Türkischer Eiserner Halbmond - Königl. Italien. Orden der Krone - Foreign??? It is hard to tell with this picture.
  13. Generalleutnant Walter Botsch with Bulgarian Order of Bravery 3rd Class with Swords & Generalleutnant René de l’ Homme de Courbière with Romanian Order of the Crown, Grand Cross with Swords
  14. First Row: Last ribbon is the Slovak Victory Cross. Again, I cannot comment on the class of award, but perhaps look up the grades and appropriate rank. I would guess he was awarded this in late 1939. Second row: 4th ribbon- I agree- Spanish Commemorative Medal 5th ribbon- Erinnerungsmedaille für die Verteidigung der Slowakei is a possibility and could link in with the Victory Cross. I think you need to try and ascertain his role with the Slovaks in this period. I don't think it is the Spanish Merit Order in Red as I can see coloured edges on this ribbon which this Spanish ribbon does not have.
