The second appears to be "_eydenhauß", but I can't figure out the first letter or find anyone who matches.

A very tough call for the 13th comapny RIR99, In june the IV battalion was commanded by Major Rettberg, on the 1st of August by Hauptman Leiling,

There is no major on the June or August list that fits.. :-(

 

v. Schilgen fits for the other one, thanks Dave!

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
