Replacement Bars on NATO Medals

#1
Does anyone nkow anywhere cheap to get replacement bars for NATO medals? Mainly the FRY one as mine's snapped off (Common problem I know).
It's mainly because I'm out now and I can't be bothered paying about £7 for a bar from Messdress, when the medal itself is about £9!
I do want it court mounted again, but I can do that myself if I can get a cheap bar from somewhere!

Ebay doesn't seem to have any!

Cheers

Best thing for that (as I done the same last week) is to file the back welds off, use a 1mm drill bit, make 2 holes either end and stitch onto ribbon...cheaper option,also.

See image below (tunic ribbon bar repair, smaller job than medal bar).
