I recently came across a photo of Bavarian Landsturm with 3rd Infantrie Brigade collar dogs. On reverse they are identified as being from the 4th Komp. Landsturm Inf. Batl. Kempten, 84. Landwehr Brigade. 13 Mai 1915. The photograph appears to be in remembrance of being awarded Bavarian Military Merit Crosses. Here are the awardees:

They two enlisted men appear to be decorated with Bavarian Military Merit Cross 3rd Class with crown & swords. The officer appears to have been awarded the Bavarian Military Merit Cross 1st Class with swords. The center medallion of the medal looks to be enameled.

Do I have the correct identification of these awards?
