Planning to Buy a British Medal Bar - will be my 1st British collection

This bar is on my hand and have been fixed! :D

I wonder which division does this medal bar belong to? Can it be Ghurka's?

Defence medal's criteria is for 'non-operational service', so this bar belongs to an instructor/admin/airfield crew?

I think it's almost impossible researching an individual who got this bar because no name on the stars and this is a common bar, isn't it? :(

So this is my summary:

This man (army,navy, or airforce) was served on a division in Burma/Malaya/Sumatra/Bengal; he was on non-operational service (an instructor/airfield crew/admin/other)

Any opinions?

Yes unfortunately impossible to research. very common combination I suspect most likely army or airforce. But i don't agree he was on non operational service he was for a time to qualify for the defence medal but that doesn't mean that he did take part in any operations against the enemy after qualifying for that medal. Quite afew canadian groups have a defence medal and the men post June 44 went on to serve in france and germany.

Cheers

Chris
