Medal Identification

I seen someone post something online about miniatures stating Northern Ireland, Falklands with Rosette and IRM in that order.

Maybe I’m being stupid but what’s IRM?

Inherent Resolve Campaign Medal, ops over Iraq and Syria this time around. Thought it was a yank thing though.

1939-45 Star, Burma Star, Defence Medal, War Medal.

Also, the shoulder flash is of the 19th Indian Infantry Division.

Quite surprised to see someone thought to frame the standard slip that accompanies medals/stars from "The under secretary of state for war". It has a list of WW2 service medals on the other side with the ones relevant to the addressee marked with a tick.

The bottom two sets of ribbons appear to be backwards?

Yarp.

Someone obviously got bored toward the end.

*spotter alert* The incremental increase of undress ribbons is actually a timeline:

1. Lower pair: ribbons that were authorised during the war.

2. 3-ribbon bar: immediately post-war. The ribbon of the Defence Medal was authorised before that of the War Medal.

3. 4-ribbon bar: now including the the ribbon of the War Medal.

Re the incremental increase, I thought something like that.

I would have gone for the two at the top, then three underneath then four personally, but each to their own I suppose.

I'm still curious what cap badge he was.

The little badge at the bottom is the insignia of the Burma Star Association.

I’d say Royal Signals based on the images.
