Identifying Gernan medals and army

Hello, I have a couple of rather clear pictures of a German connection, both taken at different times at around 1944. I am assuming he was Wehrmacht, rather than SS, as I understand SS uniform was generally black, especially for formal/ceremonial photographs like this, and it does not look like Luftwaffe or Navy either. All I know about his service is that he fought and died in the Eastern Front around Russia and Poland (I think he died in Poland). From finding what seems like records of his death (he is missing) in Eastern Europe, and by noting how decorated he was, I have gathered that he was a lieutenant, and there seems to be a wounded medal here as well, plus obviously an iron cross of some kind, but this is all that I can figure out, so if someone with a greater understanding of German WWII military, rank, insignia and medals could tell me more it would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Sean
