Afghan OSM Bar Question

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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.


  2. Yes.
  3. Cheers,

    Thanks for that,

  4. I doubt they will commission more bars for OSM Afghan, rumours were that a 'Southern Afghanistan' bar was going to come into play.
  5. 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.
