Help with Identifying WWII Ribbon Bar: Royal Engineers


Recommended Posts

WW2 MEDAL RIBBON BAR. MILITARY CROSS , G.S.M WITH M.I.D & WW2 MEDALS .  
 

It is supposedly from a Royal Engineers Grouping

Any additional information would help if Ribbon Bar is identified.  
 

It is part of my 11yr olds Son’s Bday present and I don’t know much about UK Militaria

thanks in advance

Top row: rightmost ribbon: 1939-1945 Star;

Bottom row, left ribbon: Africa Star;

Bottom row: second from left Ribbon: Italy Star

Bottom row: third from left ribbon: Defense Medal

Bottom row: rightmost ribbon: War Medal 1939-1945

Start with the link below and work your way up. You'll see the ribbon corresponds till it gets to the uppermost right on the top row.

I can supply pictures of all 9 ''British campaign medals'' from my collection if you want but in practice the most awarded was 6 with clasps for the other three if the soldier served in all the theaters covered by the 9 campaign stars.

Weasel thanks for your response.
 

the first ribbon is the military cross and the second is the General Service medal with palm for being mentioned in dispatches.

 

 Is there anyway to put a name to identify who wore this ribbon bar?

    • 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.
