Medal Ribbon

#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

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?

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.

This one?



I don't know either - that's why I asked on British Medals Forum
It's the Africa General Service Ribbon 1902 - 1956. The last clasp awarded was the the Mau Mau emergency and the clasp reads KENYA.

Still not sure that is the one, this link clearly shows that medal to have a thicker border line and 2 green stripes down the middle...not 1.

No. The Africa GSM ribbon has thicker black stripes and two green stripes. See here
It is definitely not the AGSM 1902 pattern. Checked my Medals of Brunei chart and can't see one like it although given green black and yellow are favoured colours for Sultanate medals not a bad first shout. Currently stumped...but still digging!
