Vizeadmiral Paul Wülfing von Ditten: Ribbon Bar Identification

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 26 Jul 2017 13:46

Since no one replied in the "Unidentified Medals, Decorations, Badges in wear" thread regarding my question to identify the Medal Bar of Vizeadmiral Paul Wülfing von Ditten, now I am posting his Ribbon Bar I found. I hope you can help me ID his awards from his Ribbon Bar.
Thanks!

1922 & 1925 RL state:
-Prussian Iron Cross 1st Class
-Prussian Long Service Decoration
From the photo we can see he also had some campaign medals as well as the Finnish Order of Liberty and Finnish Commemoration Medal.
And also, any idea what this award is? [red encircled]

Thanks, I'm pretty sure the second one is the Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer? And not the Sachs.-Coburg Order.

I found out that the third ribbon is the Südwestafrikadenkmünze and not the Kolonial Denkmünze. Any idea on the 7th and last ribbon? They are still unknow. Thanks.

Could the 7th ribbon/last medal on his 1925 photo be the Finnische Tapferkeitsmedaille in Silber?
