Second class cross

The Silver cross. This is an older version I think, though it is post 1918 as it has only 2 leaves on the "branches de la Croix de Bourgogne", those are the flower like extentions in between the arms of the cross.

Second class (Silver) medal. This is another post 1918 older one by the looks of it, it could have a good silver content. It is also only 1\2 as thick as the previous gold medal.

Third class (Bronze) medal. This one is smaller but to large to be a miniature, so I believe that the bronze was smaller than the rest of the medals. I am sure one of the more knowledgable members here can confirm or deny this for me. Also I believe this one pre dates 1918 as it has 3 leave on the branches.
