The left one is most likely Order of the Star of Romania (Officers Cross).

The WWI-era Wound Badge for Personnel of the Navy [Verwundetenabzeichen für Angehörige der Marine] or Marineverwundetenabzeichen [Navy Wound Badge] for short.

At the time, there were two different types of Wound Badge: One for the army and the colonial troops and the other (seen here) for the navy.

This distinction was no longer made when the Wound Badge was reinstituted for the Spanish Civil War and then World War II.

Olbrich had served in the Navy from October 1916 to October 1933:

Another unidentified medal: Konteradmiral Werner Steffan. The big cross below EK1. Is it Johanniterorden or maybe Kriegsverdienstkreuz in bigger format? :roll:
