French ribbon bar with questions 1


Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen,

my interest in frech medal bars and ribbon bars is increasing. I´ve got this nice

ribbon bar from a friend of mine. Now I would like to learn more. I tried to

determine the ribbons but I was not successfull with all of them.

Here my results:

The Order of Social Merite

The War Cross 1939 - 1945

The War Cross for foreign operational theatres

The Combatant´s Cross

The Colonial Medal

The 1939 - 1945 Commemorative war Medal

The 1943 - 1945 Italian campaign Medal

The Indochina Campaign commemorative Medal

The Insignia for the Military Wounded


Order of the Million Elephants and the White Umbrella


The Order of Quissam Alaouite Knight

First of all, judging by the other awards, I'd bet good money the very first ribbon is not for the Order of Social Merite but in fact a baddly faded Médaille Militaire (military medal) ribbon.

Secondly, the ribbon immediatly after the wounded insignia ribbon I believe to be for the Syria-Cilicia commemorative medal.

Sorry, I am completely unfamiliar with the lower 3...
