Guest Posted 23 November , 2018 Share Posted 23 November , 2018 I hope someone can help me shed some light on my great grandfather’s war medals, which my father has given me. My great grandfather was a Lance Serjent and then a Colour Serjent in the Scots Guards. He had three medals: the 1914 (Mons) Star with bar, the British War medal, and the Victory medal. We don’t have the medal ribbons for the 1914 Star or the Victory medal, only the British War medal. We do however have the ribbon bar for all three medals, but, oddly, as well as the rosette on the 1914 Star ribbon there is also one on the Victory medal ribbon too. I have read that those mentioned in dispatches would have an oak leaf on the ribbon, with a smaller oak leaf emblem on the ribbon bar, but I can find no mention of a rosette on the Victory medal ribbon bar. Can anyone shed any light on what this might represent? Thanks in advance for your help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
