Good morning gents! Could someone help me to identify three ribbons please? The three piece button hole ribbons, I know the EK2 and the FEK, but I don't know what the middle ribbon is for.

The first four piece feldspange, I know the EK2, the FEK and the Westwall, but I don't know what ribbon number two is for.

The second four piece feldspange, I know the EK2, the FEK, I think the fourth one is the Austrian veterans ribbon? I don't know what the second ribbon is for.

Thanks in advance gents!

1. It looks like the Hessen General Honor Decoration for Bravery.

2. Is there a faded orange stripe in the center? That looks like it should be the Baden Silver Merit Medal on the ribbon of the Military Karl Friedrich Merit Order.

3. The second ribbon is the Saxon Friedrich August Medal in Silver. Last one is indeed the Austrian War Commemorative Medal with Swords.

Agree with everything said, but...

couldn't that also (and: rather) be the bronze one, depending on the receipients rank? I don't see anything that makes this a NCO's bar - might well be an EM's, too.
