No thanks necessary. Google is your friend.

The QCVS emblem goes on the medal ribbon (and the ribbon for when you are not wearing the medals) for the campaign medal for relevant campaign. If there is no relevant campaign, it goes on the uniform to the left of the last medal / ribbon. For common sense reasons, most tailors will mount a self-coloured (khaki for most of us, red for Guards, dark blue for RN or RHG/D) piece of cloth as an extra, most-junior "medal" and stick the emblem on that.

ACSM - 7 clasps on the medal ribbon. When wearing just ribbons, 1 gold rosette (= 5 clasps) and 2 silver on the ribbon. Gold to the right, I think.

Just glory for the GOC commendations.

Left and right from his point of view - so right is inwards.

Any tailor or medal mounting outfit will have some in stock. You do get issue ones but they tend to end up on your uniform ... Anyway, if he's retired, he's unlikely ever to be wearing just ribbons, so you'll probably not need them.
