Assorted Japanese Medals ???

I bought these when I was a kid living with my family in Tokyo in about 1948. In those days things were a "dime a dozen" in little Japanese second-hand shops. Can anyone identify what these are for and if they are worth anything? I have tried to show the front and back. The fabric is dirty and could stand a careful cleaning.

This is the Japanese Red Cross medal, I recognize it because I have been awarded the standard medal.


SFC, Thank you, I had thought that maybe it might be something like that because of the cross. Do you have any idea of what the little blue attachment to the ribbon signifies?
