Could be the longtime service medal and the Sudetenmedal with bar ?
Hard to see from this picture. Could you show the whole deathcard? maybe it gives a hint.

They are NSDAP Long Service ribbons (10 & 15 years).
Pg=Parteigenosse, roughly "Party Comrade".

Yes, they both look like NSDAP long service awards in this better image. Interesting to note the incorrect wording on the card which lists his having the infantry assault badge whereas we clearly see a general assault badge in the photo. Also his rank designation as "Wachtmeister" means he was in the artillery or another branch and definitely not infantry where he would have been called "Feldwebel" in the well-known "Deutschmeister" unit.

I agree, with this better picture they look like the NSDAP service medals.

I also agree. This person's long-time membership in the NSDAP was seen to be more important than his military position, and that is reflected in the presence of "Pg." as his title, even though he is shown wearing a military uniform.
