Help with ribbon bar identification

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired these as a lot.  It's obvious that the three ribbon bar (pin back) consists of the BWM, MMWM and Victory Medal for World War I service.  But, what I'm not familiar with are the two red and white ribbons bars (sewn on) with 1940-41 and 1941-42 respectively embroidered on them.  Any help in identifying these and who would wear them and wear on the uniform would be greatly appreciated. They came together and I assume that someone from the Merchant Navy also served in WWII. Thanks very much in advance, John
