My new bar - 1902 to 1937 at least

Recommended Posts

Just received this in the post.

Nothing spectacular but fascinating to me.

1914 Star

British War Medal

Victory Medal

Interallied Victory Medal (unofficial)

St John Medal w/ MID ???

Edward VII Coronation - 1902

George V Coronation - 1911

George V Jubilee - 1935

George VI Coronation - 1937

Permanent Overseas Forces LS & GCM (at least 18 yrs svc)

Naval? Given backing colour??

Could be 1914 Star of 1914-15 Star (second more likely).

The MiD is quite bizarre - for something w/o campaign medal issued? Not many inter-war candidates here? If naval, the dark blue could be that??

Could be 1911 Durbar, but Coronation a better bet.

The next to last: I should know, but memory not working.


The last: France, Legion of Honor.

It came from eBay (labeled as 'Diplomat') and I like the oddity of it.

I was thinking Navy as well, but the Permanent Overseas Forces LS & GCM stumps me.

My first guess for the last on the bottom row was LdH but wanted to here somebody else say it for confirmation.

It might not necessarily be a Permanent Force LSM ribbon, as the NZ Police LSM used/uses the same. I haven't a clue as to what the next one along is, but the last one is most probably a LdH. It's certainly an odd bag, but doesn't look like a recently made up ensemble.
