I dont mean the ribbon ribbon... I mean the ribbon.

I made that very clear didn't I. Ha ha!

Full details are laid out in DCI Gen 185/91.
Like most medals it states

'When the ribbon alone is worn, a silver rosette denotes award of the Clasp.'

So on your Number 2 dress medal ribbons, (not the medal itself) will have a rosette to show that you have a bar on the medal you have been awarded.
So if you have a Bar on the medal you do not need a rosette.

You've been a long time wondering that then, surely you were issued the Medal and Ribbon 17 or 18 years ago and would have worn it many times, a bit late for the rosette question now isn't it?! 8)

Shouldn't be. As with other other gongs, the only additions to the medal ribbon are QCVS and MID.

Same here except no one ever told me to take it off. So mine still has one on the medal ribbon as well as the bar and one on the ribbon ribbon.

Thank goodness for that - for a moment there I thought I'd been improperly dressed for the past 18 years... :roll:

the south atlantic medal seems to favour rossette on the medal ribbon as well as the other thingy.

i know there was much discussion about this and the relationship between SAM and Granby, it was suggested that those involved in a prescribed area wore it on the medal ribbon and those outdside that area but still within criterea wore it without.

Im not sure what the official line is but over the years less and less have worne it on the medal ribbon.

The Cyprus windsurfing medal, 4* luxury and a mention in despatches for bravely consuming all those brandy sours...

Almost but not quite as covetted an award as the 5* Bahrain Boozers, I believe that there were some rather vicious examples of sunburn from overuse of the poolside sun loungers, not to mention some rather embarrassing exotic diseases from overindulgence of the trolley dolly amenities...

Yep - for those who served "in theatre" - because there is no clasp for the SAM, whereas you have the '16 Jan to 28 Feb 1991' and '2 Aug 1990' clasps for the Granby gong.

'Cause they go to cheap tailors?

Got the medal a few weeks before I left, so haven't ever worn it actually. Now my lad wants it framed on his bedroom wall - so I thought I'd find out the score.

Although I am now just as confused as before!!!
