Ok i did some research :


The one on the down-right is a medal called "Aktivist der sozialistischen Arbeit" (Activist of socialist labour)

Its a non-military medal for people who performed very good at work.

There is a text on its backside : "Auf sozialistische Art zu leben, erfordert auf sozialistische Art zu arbeiten."

(To live the socialist way, requieres to work the socialist way) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif



The one next to it (down-middle) is called "Kollektiv der sozialistischen Arbeit" (Collective of socialist labour)

Also a civil medal for people who did good work on something.

Text on its backside : "sozialistisch arbeiten, lernen und leben"

(to work, learn and live socialistic)


That clasp above is either military or police. Dont know.

The "Soldatentat" one on the left is an military medal for participation in some sort of military exercise.
