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.

 No one will ever know exactly what caused Max Immelmanns demise, but what is known is that his propeller was seen to disintegrate, which caused a series violent oscillations that ripped the Fokker E.III apart, the tail breaking away before the wings folded back, trapping the young German ace in his cockpit. The popular belief is that his interrupter gear malfunctioned, causing him to shoot away part of his own propeller, but British reports attribute Immelmanns loss to the gunnery of Cpl J H Waller from the nose of FE.2b 6346 flown by 2Lt G R McCubbin on Sunday, 18th June 1916. Immelmann was flying the spare E.III 246/16 as his own E.IV had been badly shot up earlier that day.
