The Significance of Ribbon Colours on Medals Worn Since 1815 by Australians


The medals and ribbon bars that are worn on the chest of a soldier summarise the service of that soldier. Many people view the ribbon of a medal as simply a coloured strip of cloth with little or no significance in its own right. This book explains the importance of the ribbon colours and their origins.
