    Yes, a common practice, as Gi states - at least in the case of the RK until the recipient could visit a proper studio with his decoration often awarded in the field.

    Wish I can find out his name...What would the medal on his right chest be?

    Right side : EK 1st class, Wound badge, Close combat clasp. Medal Bar looks like Sudetenland land with Prague Bar, West Wall and by the looks of it a long service medal.
    Left side : German Eastern Peoples Medal 1st Class

    Just found this: No Russian soldier serving in the German Army ever received the Knight's Cross to the Iron Cross..... So probably it's another medal?

    The Ostvolk 1st class was worn on the lower left breast, like the Iron Cross. The one in the photo is on his right breast.

    Maybe it's supposed to be a DK. It looks to me like the upper arms of a swastika are visible.

    The medal on the right breast is not a DK. The shape is incorrect. A DK is far more solid as this appears to have narrow arms protruding from the center. It is likely a foreign award.
