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?

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain.

    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
