New book, 136 pages, 160+ colour photos. Some rubbing wear to cover. Many books have been written describing the various orders, decorations and medals worn by Australians. However, this is the first publication which documents the significance of the colours chosen in the design of the ribbon supporting the medal. Originally the 'Naval Riband of England', a white ribbon with navy blue edges or the 'Military Riband of England', a crimson ribbon with dark blue edgeswas used on all campaign medals. With the introduction of ribbon bars, multi coloured ribbons were introduced to differentiate one medal from another. With the assistance of this book, the reader will not only be able to identify medals worn by Australians, they will also develop a greater understanding of the significance of the colours of the supporting ribbons. This book covers British Orders, Decorations and Medals awarded to Australians, the Australian Honours system, United Nations and NATO Medals awarded to Australians, Foreign Orders, Decorations and Medals awarded to Australians, Association and other Unofficial Medals worn by Australians, and the Order of Wearing Australian Honours and Awards.
