Afghan OSM Bar Question

I've got a question regarding the Afghanistan bar to the OSM. The two tabs on either side with holes at the top of the bar, is that to attach subsequent bars? I've recently had mine mounted and was wondering if a plain pin or something similar was supposed to go through them and behind the ribbon or something similiar.


IIRC that is the bar. I think the initial issue was going to be just the medal with ribbon, but was chaged to include the bar.

I think all (UK) bars are made with the same template so they all have the loops at the top. I may be mistaken but all my "Crown" medals have the loops on top of the bars.
