Hello R.M.
names in Pinterest are often wrong

Hello Dave
Sure about Wilberg because this officer evidently wears the army infantry uniform
Was Wilberg maybe first in the Army ? I don' t have him in my "Heer" data bank, but If yes, from+to when and in which assignments ?
Thanks, Rossano

Wilberg retired from the Reichswehr on 30.11.1932 and joined the Luftwaffe on 1.10.1934.

Supplement to Werner Schmidt-Hammer's decorations:

20.08.1915 Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse

02.10.1936 Wehrmacht (Heer) Dienstauszeichung 4. bis 2. Klasse

xx.xx.xxxx Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 mit Spange “Prager Burg”

26.05.1940 Spange zum EK I

There is a ribbon after the Dienstauszeichnungen on the Feldspange in Lassance's photo above. It is probably the Sudetenland Medal (Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938) with clasp, since Infanterie-Regiment 31 was part of those operations.
Thanks to the enormous generosity of my friend Dieter... Well, Werner Schmidt-Hammer, as never seen before.
