British Ribbon Bars: 1/8th inch a regulation?

Recommended Posts

I have the following British medals. Some of you might have read about the wrong order the ribbon bar of numbers 1 through 6 was sent to me. I am now thinking of buying loose ribbon bars for the rest and putting them on a 15 ribbon bar, thus 3 ribbons per bar. The question is: is the 1/8th inch distance between rows a British regulation or could I go for flush spacing?

 Victoria Cross

 Distinguished Service Order

 Distinguished Service Cross
 Military Cross 
 The 1939-1945 Star
 Atlantic Star
 Arctic Star
 Air Crew Europe Star
 Africa Star
 Pacific Star
 Burma Star
 Italy Star
 France and Germany Star

I realize that I would be circumventing the 4 ribbons per row ''rule/regulation'' but to my eyes 5 full rows of 3 ribbons each are much more appealing. Any ideas on this?
