What are the three awards on the uniform of Oberst Dr. Ernst Kupfer that surround the Iron Cross?

1. Red Cross with swords
2. Gold Wings above the Iron Cross
3. The badge that is to the lower right of the Iron Cross

The pinback cross is the Bulgarian Military Order for Bravery 4th Class, above the EK I are Italian Air Force pilot wings and the pinback badge bottom right is a Bulgarian Air Force pilot's badge.

The neck cross? The photo is a bit small, but that looks like the Prussian Roter-Adler-Orden 2. Klasse mit Schwertern [Red Eagle Order with Swords 2nd Class] to me.

thx for clarification. i thought it was the highest class of the Hohenzollern Orden.

so the roter adler orden 2nd class was allowed to be worn around the neck. what class of the hohenzollern orden was General Trierenberg awarded?

@HPL: do you have a picture with the Hohenzollern Orden worn around the neck? i read somewhere that it was the 2nd highest Orden after the PLM, line the DKiG durung WW2

There are three Austro-hungarian medals with war decoration (the left one awarded 2nd time), then Karl-Truppenkreuz and Hindenburg-cross. The medals would be "Tapferkeitsmedaillen" or "Eisernes/Silbernes Verdienstkreuz". The bar appears as a former WW1-serving NCO.

Regards

Christian

Hello,
could you help me with the awards of Admiralarzt Dr. med. Fritz Nadler

1 Spanienkreuz ohne Schwerter, can someone confirm what class it is? I would say Silber.
2 Is this the Kriegsverdienstkreuz I. Klasse mit Schwertern?
3 This award is not as visible, but could it be the Heer Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz? (Nadler recieved it during WW1)

Thanks
