cheers biguk for doing the ribbon

Erm, I think you'll find thats Yiths (or another mods) call TBH...

Reasoned debate is fine, personally from a Mods point of view I'd have said that the orginators wishes (i.e diesel monkey) were stated and that should end it if anything... be rude otherwise.

Can you not find a pre 1900 one? The whole point is for it to be a ribbon not worn by anyone living...

Incidentally I've awarded myself the order of the big walt ;)

Good grief, it's not hard to find an old one.

See http://www.worldmedals.co.uk/Rib/Britrib/britribb.htm

Choose any from the Campaign Medals 1793 - 1939 section. Preferably as early as possible. That's where dieselmonkey got his from originally.

And Big UK... don't worry. I'll do it for you.

That's the site I found in the time it took to type 'medal ribbon' into google.
