The shading can get a bit odd for the colors on these old photos.  The only thing with that stripe pattern I can think of is the China Medal.

I agree.  We know how yellow can turn up really dark in these photos.  Combined with single-medal ribbon bar using the old style wrap, I think we are looking at a China veteran who is proud of his earlier service. 

Can we see the entire photo?

Thank you ver much guys. I always think about it could be China Medal - but was never shure.

Of course you can - here the entire photo. Its a Father and Son studio Portrait.





Would be interesting to know if they both made it out of the war alive :ninja:
