    Order of ribbons on a civilian button ribbon bar

    Recommended Posts

    Hello All,

    Sorry for this daft question, but my memory has failed me somewhat.  On a civilian button ribbon "bar" from after 1934, where you have a combination of ribbons from 1914 to 1945 - what were the rules for the order of the ribbons on the button bar?  I.e. which had to be at the back and which at the front and which went in between.

    Hello Mike:

    A good question.  For a "civilian button ribbon bar", if I understand the question correctly, the highest award ribbon is on top (furthest from the button), with all other awards following is order of precedence, until the lowest-ranked award is at the bottom (closest to the button).  The award precedence is the same as the full-sized (large) medal bar and the field ribbon bar for military uniforms.

    I hope that this answers your question.

    Best regards,
