Maybe?, these are a nightmare to authenticate, lots of debate all over the internet. Here is the one I have settled for, before I attached a new ribbon, but no guarantee this is right either I am afraid.

No problem Nick, there is more than one variation of this medal, so they could both be authentic or alternatively both be fakes. We will probably never know for sure :( Lots of information discussing these, but unless you can get one with an authentic document from a trusted source it is a lottery.
