    There's EK 1 and 2 in WW1, as well as the spange for both in WW2, wound badge black WW1, Dienstauszeichnung 2-4th class, Romanian crown 3rd class, KVK 2d and 1st class, Balkenkreuz, Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer, Sudetenmedaille with Spange, Ostmedaille, Romanian Medal for the fight against Communism (not in that order, sort of jumped around) and a few more. I can't get the 3d one down on first page, or a couple on the 2d page.

        Allow me to fill in the blanks. The third one on the first page says:
        • "Braunschw. Kr. Verd. Kr." = "Braunschweigisches Kriegsverdienstkreuz" [Brunswick War Merit Cross]

        On the second page (after the obvious Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse mit Schwertern) are:
        • "Komturkreuz des Ordens vom Römischen Adler mit Schwertern" [Commander's Cross of the Order of the Roman Eagle with Swords]
        • "Komturkreuz des Ordens v. Rum. m. Schw. am Band der mil. Tugend" = "Komturkreuz des Ordens von Rumänien mit Schwertern am Band der militärischen Tugend" [Commander's Cross of the Order of Romania with Swords on the Ribbon for Military Virtue]
        • "Rum. Erinnerungsmed. 'Kreuzzug geg. d. Kommunismus'" = "Rumänische Erinnerungsmedaille 'Kreuzzug gegen den Kommunismus'" [Romanian Commemorative Medal 'Crusade against Communism'] (as said above)
