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
 George Cross
 Distinguished Service Order
 Member of the British Empire
 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?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
