    Hi, no:1 is an aircraft pilot badge, no:2 is the national sport badge, no:3 is a wound badge ( can't determine from the photo it's colour, could be black, silver or gold).

    The photo is of a physically fit German pilot who was injured at some point.

    Is that where they typically wore their medals? I would think it would have been positioned higher on the chest, but I have only seen mainly American uniforms.

    Yes, this is how awards were worn.

    I've always thought it funny, they seem so low - at the stomach !
    Iron Crosses and badges such as these look so much better
    on tunics with pockets, because they sit a bit higher......!
    Regards,
