I believe the original German K3 was laid down pre-war so ribbons could well have been made for her. Construction was halted however, and she was never commisssioned. Subsequently, after the fall of Holland, a captured Dutch vessel was renamed as K3. So, the ribbon would refer to the original German K3 which never saw service as opposed to the Dutch K3 which served through the war (and survived).

I was just curious whether the tradition badge could be confirmed as being for K3.

Then the tally would have been for the first K3. John
