  1. next up is a bar to a maybe high ranking officers bar again it has the legion of merit commander grade, now its the LACK of awards that to me means i should be able to get an ID but again no luck!its been suggested its a brigadier who helped in ww2 say in the D Day landing due t the F&G star!can anyone suggest any new way to get an ID?

  2. i thought id start a new and hopefully interesting thread!as we all know(or should know!!),is that some German ribbon bars can be ID;ed, interestingly British bars can also be ID;d to!however just like with the German ribbon bars you will always get a ribbon bar that fails to be ID;ed despite having a unique combination of awards!so with that in mind i thought i post some from my collection to see if anyone could maybe get an ID and if other people want to post theres please feel free!who know it might throw some interesting results!!!

    first up is a really nice bar that HAS to be to a high ranking officer! with the last ribbon being the commander of the legion of merit it narrows it down to 170 people who were awarded that in ww2,then with the CB DSO 2 MIDs and the mons star there should get an ID but so far after after checking WO373 and trying to cross referencing them with officers who served in ww1via ancestry i cant find a match!can anyone suggest another avenue or source?

  3. going forward id recommend getting the coranation rolls!also they would be your best hope of getting a name but it means trawling through the 37 rolls and finding an officer with a dso and bar and that auxillary award!it will be a fair bit of work and you still might not get a name!

    then after that with the names you get off the rolls youl need to hit the LG and get the officers on that liist who have a MID and LOM! its going to be alot of work!
