But there are no Swords on Canaris's ribbon? The combatant version of the Hungarian Commemorative Medal had the Swords.
Well, this medal had the Schwerter or the Schwerter und Helm.
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?

Yes the ribbon does not necessarily have to have a swords device on it.

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.

The Bulgarian National Order for Military Merit always has swords. It is part of the design of the order. The wartime distinctions are the War Decoration and, on the lower classes when awarded for bravery, the use of the ribbon of the Military Order for Bravery.
