Scott, Wilhelm Spahr served as Obersteuermann with U-47 at several patrols including the famous Scapa Flow patrol. Hans Ibbeken made only one patrol during WW2 (he was CO of U-27 during Spanish Civil War) Some successful commanders were awarded the badge after only one patrol and I believe Ibbeken was one of them

Hello, According to SM U 59 on 14 May 1917 struck a mine off Horns Reef and sunk with 33 dead and 4 survivors. I found in a WW I submariner service record that he served on U 59 until 15.09.17 (also received EK II 15.09.17). Then he was posted on SMS Vineta. These 4 survivors rescued and returned to Germany ?
