Full size MID device on the ribbon bar

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Picked up that nice pin back bar and just would like to confirm one small detail on it - usually early bars that I have and what I have seen are 99% with the miniature size oakleaf but in this case there are full size MID device used. I have seen these on the handfull of bars only.

Is it something that veterans would be able to ask themselfs from the tailor shop (especially if it was the case that they bring their own pits and pobs to the shop, in order to put the bar together) or the bar makers had some kind of flexibility to pick up the devices.

I may be wrong on this point - however, I think the recipient of an MID was issued with two full size oak leaves. If they couldn't find the

miniature they probably did as this man - used the spare one. Perhaps someone can confirm the issue ? Mervyn

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
