SS funeral photo. Could someone tell me what the decoration with the red arrow is?

Article about: I recently acquired this SS funeral photo. Could someone tell me what the decoration with the red arrow is? I also wonder why they are using a WW1 type helmet on the casket. Thanks very much

    The Ostmedal looks line it's on a trifold or is that a special funeral ribbon?

    Neither. The Ostmedaille and the EK 2 are not mounted as medal bars: The ribbons are simply pulled through the suspension rings and draped in a "V" shape, with the the two ends of the ribbon affixed to the pillow (probably by simple pins or perhaps a few loose stitches.)
