Great photo! As others have noted, the top medal looks like an example of the WWI German Iron Cross (different versions were produced, and it is hard to see any details, but it likely looks like the photo attached). 

The lower medal is harder to make out, but it seems to be the Friedrich August Cross 2nd Class from the Grand Duchy of Oldenburg. According to various websites, this medal was established in September 1914 for all ranks and was the Grand Duchy’s equivalent of the Prussian Iron Cross for bravery
