Wearing of Ribbons and Medals
Because we are portraying the HG in 1940/41 many of them were former WW1 or ex Regular soldiers, and would have some form of medal ribbons- but not all. So to keep in line with this the following rule is to be adhered to:
You may wear medal ribbons only If you have earned a Gallantry/Campaign/ Jubilee/ Long service medal whilst serving your time in any of the following:
(a) Armed services (any branch)
(b) Emergency Services (any branch)
(c) Red Cross, St John Ambulance
As a guide you may wear the equivalent WW1 medal ribbon(s):
e.g. Northern Ireland CSM= British War & Victory ribbons
OSM Afghanistan=India General Service ribbon.
More than two campaign medals =1914/15, British War and Victory ribbons
Any Queen's Jubilee medal= George IV Coronation medal.
Again, if unsure please ask Barry for guidance.
