Help appreciated to learn more about a recently acquired medal.

Pakistan Independence Medal.

Right medal but gold and red ribbon as opposed to green ribbon.

Any ideas why?

Should be green with thin white central stripe. Why gold and red ? Perhaps somebody just thought it looked more attractive that way !!!!!

Yea, take a look at what costume directors have done to medal bars on older movies. Enough to make your hair stand on end: Brits wearing German decorations awarded before they were born is the least of it. :banger:
