Hello, can someone please tell me what are the classes of the two circled awards? And if the awards I name below are correct for the assigned ribbons?

1st row: -Spanish Order of Military Merit

2nd row: -Japanese Order of the Sacred Treasure

The last two, on the top row, look to be the Spanish War campaign medal and the Order of Military Merit (red) for combatants. To be totally correct, ribbon bars for combatants should have crossed sword attachments on both....not unusual for them to be forgotten.

As to the bottom bar....yes, it is the correct ribbon for the Japanese Order of the Sacred Treasure and with rosette it is most likely the 4th class....to be sure, you should post the bar in the Asia forum.

Thank you John. I believe the 2nd to last ribbon in the first row is the Spanish Order of Naval Merit, because the owner of this ribbon bar, Vizeadmiral Joachim Lietzmann was the recipient of the Grand Cross of the Spanish Order of Naval Merit with White Decoration.

And the Spanish War campaign medal has black stripes on each end of the ribbon.
