Marcus, I know this doesn't make any sense, but it actually resembles the Gau Baden badge for female members of the Party.

I think Marcus this is the German Motor Sports Badge.

This might be of help.

Thats just a "variation" of wearing of the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Cl. in the pocket buttonhole rather than its more normal front flap buttonhole.....unusual, but other photos are known, some also with the "Hindenburg Cross" (1914-18 Honor Cross) on the other side/angle of the buttonhole...

Obviously fairly early (from the tabs & piping)....when some indivigual "flair" was still allowed.

1. What is the badge on the lower left sleeve?
2. What is the fourth medal on his uniform (lower black one), apart from Parachute Badge, Ground Assault Badge of the Luftwaffe, and National Sports Badge?
3. In the ribbon: EK2?, Luftwaffe long service award, and ?

Thank you in advance...

1. A "Trade" or "Speciality patch".....but other than being piped (usually means NCO level) I can't see what the design is....so unknown which one....

2. A Black wound Badge

3. Ribbon bar dark & not real clear- but "I" see a 1914 Iron Cross; 1914/18 Honor Crossw/swords; a LW Long Serv.; and last is just too dark....olacement means it should be a "flower medal" or "other WW 1 serv. or Foreign Award"- but too dark to guess IMO.

Hello friends.

I've found this pinc of Generalleutnant Otto Lancelle on Wikipedia, and I can't identify the 4th and 5th medals of his medal bar:

On Axis Biographical Research there aren't any references about these two awards. Any help.

Thanks.

Cartaphilus,
The "round" medal appears to be the Prussian Rettungsmedaille (Life Saving Medal)....can't help on the other.
