The ribbon between the DSO and the 39-45 Star is probably the Order of St John. Maj Gen Poole was listed as a knight of the order in 1949, and he would no doubt have been a member of the order for some time before that.

Thanks everyone! Mysteries solved! I was not aware that he was a KStJ as well. I've found a reference to him being made a Commander of the Legion of Merit at the victory pde in Monza. I assume the bar on the ribbon in the top photograph is the device shown here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legion_of_Merit
