    Not so sure about "man" .....Carl replied on that link thread

    The 32 millimetres (1.3 in) wide ribbon is grey flanked by narrow red stripes, with broad green stripes at the edges

    image.jpeg
    The ribbon is 32 millimetres wide, with equal width bands of Navy blue, Army red and Air Force blue, with the dark blue band representing the Naval Forces and the Merchant Navy, the red band the Armies and the light blue band the Air Forces. The equal width bands represent the equal contributions of the three service arms towards victory.

    image.jpeg
    The ribbon is 32 millimetres wide, with a 3½ millimetres wide navy blue band, a 4 millimetres wide dark yellow band and a 3½ millimetres wide navy blue band, repeated and separated by a 10 millimetres wide Army red band. The dark blue bands represent British Naval forces, the red band represents the Commonwealth Armies and the dark yellow bands represent the sun.

    The ribbon is identical to the one that was introduced for the Army Long Service and Good Conduct Medal in June 1916. It is 32 millimetres wide and crimson or sometimes reddish violet, edged with 3 millimetres wide white bands.

    I'm painting the Burma star on. Curious as to why he would be wearing it as it wasnt issued until after May '45. I think the TV show had it on as a tribute to those who were in Burma.... I also just discovered that the 39-45 Star, (originally called the 39-43 Star), was issued in 1943 to those who had been in Burma in 1942. Adds a bit of a back story to BSM Williams dont ya think....
