But there are no Swords on Canaris's ribbon? The combatant version of the Hungarian Commemorative Medal had the Swords.

I know, do you agree it's the ribbon of the Hungarian Commemorative Medal that Canaris is wearing? Even though the ribbon is without Schwerter?

As an active officer I would assume he received the Kriegsverdienstkreuz mit Schwertern.

From my point fo view, Kriegsabzeichen für Minensuch-, U-Boot-Jagd- und Sicherungsverbände. Rieve served during the War on coastal duties (Oslo Por commandant, commander of Channel Coast, Naval Station of North Sea), and this badge is very charasteristic of those duties.
