Having a hard time deciphering these entries.  I know the first one is the EK2.  Thanks in advance.

The line below the EK2 refers to it as well: "Regimentsbefehl Landwehr-Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr. 15"

"E.V.K. a. Bd. T.M. am 31.8.17" appears to be the Eisernes Verdienstkreuz am Bande der Tapferkeitsmedaille from Austria-Hungary.

Good question!   No idea really, but I am pretty certain that the numbers of awarded to Germans was annotated anywhere in the Austro-Hungarian records (happy to be corrected).
