Welcome to the forum Kryptos and thank you for posting.
I have to admit knowing very little about these but they look like fine examples. Did they come on ribbons? Can you tell us more about these medals as they are quite rare to find.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Looks great ! Welcome aboard !!
Here is a bit of info:
Awarded to Sisters and Matrons of the German Red Cross in these classes:
1. For 10 years service as a Sister (silver)
2. For 25 years service as a Sister (silver)
3. For long service as a Matron (gold)
4. For long service as a senior Matron (gold)

Thanks for the welcome, guys! Looking forward to reading more in the forum.
Wolfspear is spot on there. The matron's crosses are even harder to find with the senior matron's cross being very rare.
The items were suspended from a neck chain and did not come on a ribbon at all.
