Gents,

What medals do the purple ribbon with the 6 yellow stripes and the red ribbon with the two blue stripes at each end belong to.

Gordon

Gordon-- whaat does the BACK of the ribbon bar look like? It looks from the front like the same construction as American ones!

Rick,

Good question. I only have the picture of the front as it is attached to a uniform which I do not own but was considering buying.

SasaYU,

Thanks for adding pictures of some of the medals. I knew what the other ones were. Just didn't have pictures of the ribbons for the two I asked about. Interesting ribbon bar.

Regards,

Gordon

I was answering to Rick's question how back of the ribbons look like.

Here are ribbons you were interested in:

30 years of Yugoslav people's army

:Cat-Scratch: Fascinating. These are remarkably similar to BRITISH pattern ribbon bars of the late 1940s!!!!!!!

SasaYU,

Sorry, I didn't realize you were answering Rick's question. Are larger ribbon bars, like the one I posted, pinned on, or sewn on to the tunic? What would the back of a ribbon bar with 8 ribbons look like?

Regards,

Gordon

Here are two ribbon bars from my collection. Both were made to be sewn on to the tunic.

Most of YU ribbon bars are sewn on with backing. Here are two more unusual ones:

partial backing (a bar from UNEF member): averse

Thanks for showing these different types. :cheers: First British-style pin-backs, and then American-style clutch-backs. Odd that the full size medal ribbons should be Soviet-style-- I guess that included everybody!!!
