Hi, what are the two other neck orders below the Pour le Mérite with Oakleaves (The lower/upper pic middle neck orders are different)?
The lowest one: Württemberg Military Merit Order Commander's Cross?

Here you can see better ;

Below the strap; Commander of the House and Merit Order of Peter Frederick Louis with swords and laurel ( Oldenburg ).
On the left breast; Officer's Cross of the Military Merit Order with Swords ( Bavaria ).
The lowest one: Württemberg Military Merit Order Commander's Cross ?
I can't assure that it's that cross....

I need help with this ribbon. Seeing where it is placed it can be one of two things: Spange (1939) zum Eisernen Kreuz 2. Klasse or Ritterkreuz des Königlich Preußischen Hausordens von Hohenzollern mit Schwertern.
The Konteradmiral in question (Hasso von Bredow) didn't receive the HOH3x. That said, and taking into consideration the poor quality of the photo, can we then assume the ribbon is indeed the Spange zum EK2. Klasse?

Hello ;

The last recognizable red/green ribbon is for a Bavarian, Army Jubilee Medal 1905.
The dark medal could be a Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Silver Medal of Merit of the Ducal Saxe-Ernestine House Order, Duke Carl Eduard,
since it uses a ribbon with very similar colours, this is just my speculation...

Ok, thanks. It could be Erinnerungs-Denkmünze an die Goldene Hochzeit König Ludwigs III. und Königin Thereses Weihnachten 1918., when you look closely there's barely visible hair line on the black one that corresponds to mentioned medal.

Yes, that's a better option, and the ribbon matches.
