The ribbon belongs to the Hindenburg Cross-a medal for having served in WWI. The medal here- a War Merit Cross with Swords would have a ribbon with outer edges in thin red with thin white stripes next and a wide black center single stripe.

William is correct.
Nice KVK though

Good zinc cross but with little finish remaining unfortunately. Can you post any pics of the ribbon in natural light please just to make sure it's ok?
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
