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 am trying to identify a Medal from a piece of ribbon.

    The ribbon is predominantly yellow, with 1 narrow dark green stripe down the centre, and 1 narrow black stripe down each edge.

    Any ideas - please help :?

    Thanks

    Having checked my medal yearbook, no ribbons match your description, a piccy would be of help.

    I don't know either - that's why I asked on British Medals Forum
     
  5. My word...is it British?
     
  6. Yes, more than likely because it has a British Nato Stock Number on the bag. CA 8455 99 135 6243 - any suppliers out there able to identify?
     
  7. Hi Felix, I think it is a Royal Brunei Armed Forces medal ribbon...when I get into work tommorow I shall ask one of the locals. From the days of old they still use the same UK codification system for catalogueing so the number might well comply.
     
  8. Check your PMs for someone who may be able to help.
     
  9. Thanks dingerr

  12. Not the old Africa General Service Medal ribbon is it? Last issued during the 1950s Mau Mau campaign in Kenya.
     
  13. It's the Africa General Service Ribbon 1902 - 1956. The last clasp awarded was the the Mau Mau emergency and the clasp reads KENYA.
