Attached is the orders section for Friedrich Freiherr von Waldenfels (4.5.1897-9.8.1924), who served in the Bavarian Army during the war, then in Ukraine and the Baltics from 1918-1920, and then in the Reichswehr.

Notice the bottom three, with the Baltenkreuz and the two before and after it. The first looks like "Orden der. H. Anna m. Schleife u. Schw." A post-Tsarist award by the nominal Russian leadership of the German/Russian forces fighting the Bolsheviks in the Baltic region? The last, the "Schw. Armeekreuz", is I assume the Schwarzes Armeekreuz, or Black Army Cross, of the the Freiwillige Deutsch-Russische Westarmee and the Iron Division.
