Quite a late answer, :P

However, the answers for different ribbons is the same as the answer why officers get orders and the lower grades get the zeal-medal,

Just because of the ranks, just to state the difference between the sailor and the lieutenant.....

Even the english do it, Admirals become knighted, sailors get a medal to commemorate their part in the action......

Belgians give lower grades of the national orders to the NCO's and soldiers, whereas officers get the knights-classes immediately....

yes, the pure equal society doesn't exist..... :o:P but differences motivates :):D:D

    • 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 .
