Response to 1939-43 Medal
Yes Chris, I understand your point. However, it doesn't answer the question about the precise dates on which these ribbons would have actually appeared on the uniform tunics of Canadian (or other Commonwealth) servicemen and servicewomen. I have two of my grandfather's wartime tunics, and the one he grew out of at the end of 1943 only has the spam ribbon on it, while the one that he wore in Holland in January 1945 had the spam ribbon and the 1939-4x ribbon on it.
It would be interesting to know when each of these ribbons actually appeared.
