I can't wait, and my scan won't be any better than the image from ebay. So here it is:-

Not sure who either of them are - any ideas?

Not everyone had a wound badge.

The bloody Ludwig was also given to people who did not have the WB.

There were also some Württemberger with it.

Now that the auction is over, here is another nice photo of this award being worn. He is also wearing the Hohenzollern and possibly the Hamburg Hanseatic Cross. There can't be too many men with this combo, it's just a shame that his name was not on the back of the photo....

The third ribbon is undoubtedly the Hessian General Honor Decoration "For Bravery". He's probably a reserve officer. Can you read the number on his shoulder boards?

BTW, I modified the thread title to the proper name for the award.

Hi Dave & Graham,
Thanks for your replies and the additional photos. Unfortunately I'm not very good at reading the shoulder boards,
but I have inverted the colour which might help a bit? Looks like I got the other award completely wrong! :)

Ok here is another one. The Hohenzollern is nice too! Note that he doesn't have the wound badge yet...
