But one should always remember that cavalier could bought replacement ribbon for his order or medal.

Anytime he or she felt like doing so.

Here how this replacement ribbons (and original pockets for them) looked like.

That is a great photo - collection of replacements with pockets!

Here comes a nice example.

Is this really light blue? :)

Well, I'd call it a bluish-grey. The rosette is more of a light blue! :whistle:

Different colors of rosette and ribbon ...

Usual story with sacred treasure!

Different manufacturers (very likely scenario)?

Nice piece! :cheers:

BTW, it's a ribbon of a Const. Medal.

No prompting! :lol:

How about your thoughts about below photo of this ribbon?

I don't think that this is original ribbon.

But the gear came from the right period.

Somebody tried to do his/her best while attaching this old gear to the ribbon :lol:

Moire is wrong + original ribbon has small red stripes at the sides.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
