A very interesting photo!

The cross if the "Skyddskårernas Förtjänstkors" (eng.: Merit Cross of the Defence Forces?). Instituted in 1922.

The thing in the button hole is the 10 year long service award for service in the Danish "Kongeligt Livjægerkorps" (eng.: ?). Instituted in 1921. It is a powder measure (not sure if that is the correct translation?) to be worn from a green ribbon in the 3rd button hole.

The Suojeluskunta (Civil Guard) Merit corss was established in silver and iron grade (silver is scarce, ca. 500 only awarded). Two last shields are shooting awards of local SK detachments. This one in the pocket button hole is possibly  Estonian Kaitselit (Defence League) member badge.
