Along with the badge came a ribbon with red and white stripes, which
was not to be worn with the medal itself, but was to be looped
through the second buttonhole of the tunic when the medal was not
being worn. However, these often turn up with the ribbon sewn onto
the pin on the back, and it appears that this variation on the mode
of wear was done during the war.
There are also trapezoidal clasps that have been seen, designed to
be worn on the ribbon, and bearing the names of various campaigns or
theaters of operations during the war. These campaign clasps
had no official status, but their wear seems to have been accepted
at the time of the war. The picture shown here is of a clasp with
Arabic text of "Palestine".
