Medal Ribbon ID?

Recommended Posts

4thGordons

Detail from a group shot of some Gordons (TF) - can the medal ribbons (far left cpl, centre sgt and right cpl) shown be identified please?

I am hoping if I can identify the medals then I may be able to identify the individuals.

TIA

Chris

As nobody else has yet replied I thought I'd offer my wild stab in the dark.

L/Cpl on left QSA and KSA (or poss star ribbon?)

Sgt in middle no idea but the medal bar looks wider than the two ribbons causing stripe on either end

L/Cpl on right QSA and KSA. 

 

I await my shooting down.

Think Simon has the LCpl on right correct, appears to be QSA, KSA.

 

The LCpl on left, his 1st ribbon appears to be QSA, 2nd might be KSA, hard to be certain tho.

 

Serg't centre, I cannot say, any chance of a blowup (not too big) pls

 

Thanks, Bryan

The L/Cpl on the rights second medal looks to have a 3 coloured ribbon in distinct stripes as opposed to the more 'merged ' stripes of a star hence I think KSA.

It does not appear to be a 1914-15 star Simon.

I have no idea what ribbon(s) the Serg't is wearing tho, at first I thought 2nd ribbon Army LS buts its way to wide for that ribbon. There has to be at least two ribbons he is wearing.

My next thought was Edward VII Coronation but that is just a guess. In what I think is that time frame it would be worn first.

 

Might help  if we knew the approx time frame of the photo.

RNCVR.

I think I've mixed up my lefts and rights. Either way it's not a star. I still think that the Sgts ribbons look as if they have a bit of medal ribbon bar visible at either end rather than the light stripes being part of the ribbon,

Yes, that could well be Simon.

I didn't mention the time frame of the pic because I didn't want to influence answers (although the fact that several of them are wearing Simplified SD jackets might be a clue)

I am fairly certain this is from 1914/early 15. Probably the former.

Here is the entire image

and here are some close ups of the ribbons

Left (as we look) to right.
