Can you help me identify the awards of Hermann Lorey from his ribbon bar?

This is his list of awards I managed to find:

Königl. Preuss. Kaiser Wilhelm-Erinnerungsmedaille 1797-1897
Kolonialdenkmünze mit Spange „Venezuela 1902/03“
Königl. Preuss. Roter Adler-Orden 4. Klasse
1914 EK 2. Klasse
1914 EK 1. Klasse
Kaiserl. Türkischer Osmanje-Orden 4. Klasse
Kaiserl. Türkischer Medschidiè-Orden 4. Klasse mit Säbeln
Kaiserl. Türkischer Eiserner Halbmond
Königl. Preuss. Dienstauszeichnungskreuz
Marineverwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz (1918)
Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer
Kriegsverdienstkreuz (1939) 2. Klasse ohne Schwertern 

Now his ribbon bar:

- 1914 EK 2. Klasse
- Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer ???
- Königl. Preuss. Roter Adler-Orden 4. Klasse ???
- Kolonialdenkmünze mit Spange „Venezuela 1902/03“ ???

I'm sorry but this is the best I can do.

I think the ribbons are visible good enough.

Do you have any ideas? Do you at least agree with my identifications?

Thank you very much! The unknown ribbon you left out is the Kriegsverdienstkreuz (1939) 2. Klasse ohne Schwertern I'm pretty sure. How sure are you about the 3 ribbons you identified (can I put these awards in my awards list for Lorey)? And also do you think the Liakat and Imtiaz medals are more likely to be the Silver versions instead of Gold (the Gold versions were pretty hard to get)?

Hi,

I am not 100 % sure, it is only my interpretation,

what we need is a Marinerangliste from the early 20s.

Maybe someone out here has such a Liste?!

Kind regards

Andreas,

unfortunately the 1922 Reichsmarine Rangliste only lists his EK1 and Dienstauszeichnungskreuz!

I agree with your interpretation. It is quite likely Lorey was awarded the Imtiyaz and Liakat medal because he serverd in Turkey during WW1. However do you think it's the Silver or Gold versions?
