Crimea medal. Strange ribbon


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

This Crimea medal has a strange period ribbon : instead of a clasp it carries a "pip" sewn on the obverse.

Could this pip be made to complete the story. I have never seen anything quite the like.

Comments will be gratefully received. Thank you

If the medal is Un-Named it may have been issued to an officer and he just added the pip himself.....

Nice of you, Mike, to start with an opinion. I fully agree with your idea, and I rather hope the "pip" will be able to tell us a little more. The medal was unnamed, as issued.

I have been wondering if the "pip" could not have been added some time after the campaign, possibly to remember a second lieutenant who could have been killed in that war, or could have died some time after.

Best regards

Seems to be a possible answer. I think often families add all the bits and pieces in a way that seems logical to them, but maybe not to us.
