Again the question: do we know any additional Vornamen?

Hello
Schünemann is reported to have been Kdr. IR. 184 from end aug. 39 (above and in his Karteikarte).
But Dippold too (in his Karteikarte, confirmed in PV/HPA). Who or what wrong ?
I have Dippold as Kdr. or Fhr. d. 183.Div. from 11.39 (PV reads from 1.12.39 as Kdr., earlier mFb. ?)
Thanks

In case it is still needed (I was beginning my army service then, no wonder it took me one and a half years to see it):

The one born 02.05.1883 is Ernst Wilhelm Hermann Carl Otto Schünemann

The one born 06.10.1891 is Otto Hans Friedrich Schünemann

Can anyone give me his WWI awards besides the EKII. Did he have any foreign awards, Romanian perhaps?
