i can only find two medals that the ribbon might belong to

1) the imperial service medal - generally given to civil service types for long service ie: 25 years

2) the distinguished conduct medal (the blue is darker than the ISM) given to warrant officers and non commissioned officers

hope that helps

Default Re: What medal

Some observations:

The Distinguished Conduct Medal is primarily an Army award - ie given for bravery on land (as opposed to the Distinguished Service Medal which is more a Naval award for bravery at sea). So if he were serving in the RN, unless he was with a Royal Naval Division, he is unlikely to have been awarded the DCM.

The Imperial Service Medal was awarded for at least 25 years service in the Civil Service (which used to include the Post Office). The combination of WWI medals with the ISM is not uncommon as many men left the services and then became postmen or civil servants.

The ribbon for the ISM is wider (1.5 inches) than the DCM (1.25 inches)

A photo of an ISM is attached - this particular recipient was a Ropemaker in Chatham Dockyard.

By the way all ISMs are listed in the London Gazette. I can probably find the entry for you provided his full name is not too common (ie John Smith, George Williams etc).

I am not sure if this is the right thread to post this information, but I have recently come across the attached list of medal ribbons. The original is a 1901 copy of Boys Own Paper Annual, and the four pages, originally connected, have come apart and been damaged many years ago. Some of it is still readable, so if anyone has any queries, please ask.
I hope someone finds this interesting.
Steve

All the ribbons appear to belong to medals awarded during the reign of Queen Victoria; either for Campaign Service or LSGC.except the Boer War.

The Orders of Medjidie and Osmanieh were Turkish awards that were given to quite a few British Officers, including those who were attached to the Egyptian Army, usually for service in both Egypt and the Sudan.

Americas first true aircraft carrier, the USS Langley (CV-1) is pictured making way at sea as a pair of Douglas DT-2s pass overhead.

Half Price! - £15.00
 The Type VII U-Boat became the standard design for German submarine warfare during the Second World War, sometimes hunting in packs, but more often alone. This Type VIIC has just claimed another victim, surfacing under the cover of night to observe the fiery demise of another victim.

Half Price! - £25.00
 Arguably the most iconic moment in British naval history, <i>HMS Victory</i> is depicted just moments from firing her devastating opening salvo into the stern galleries of the French flagship </i>Bucentaure</i> at Trafalgar as Nelson's flagship enters the fray at approximately 12.30pm on October 21st 1805.  Beyond <i>Victory</i>, in the extreme distance through the gun smoke, Collingwood's <i>Royal Sovereign</i>is engaging the <i>Santa Ana</i>.  To the left of the painting, the French <i>Neptune</i> and Spanish <i>San Justo</i> can be seen with <i>Redoutable</i> immediately beyond <i>Victory</i>, trying vainly to close the gap.  <i>Victory</i>, already shot to pieces, is about to wreak her terrible revenge on the <i>Bucentaure</i> in the foreground where Vice-Admiral Villeneuve can be seen on the poop deck - wearing the green corduroy pantaloons.  Nelson was surely the nemesis of Villeneuve, who had been summarily humiliated some seven years earlier at the Battle of the Nile and Nelson's tactics would again win the day for His Majesty's navy, albeit at the tragic cost of Nelson himself.
