Merchant Navy Combat Bar

Merchant Marine Combat Bar
This is not a medal but a ribbon, half dark and half light blue with a narrow stripe of scarlet with white edges in the centre. It was issued to crew members of any merchant vessel attacked by the enemy. Those who had been forced to abandon ship were awarded a small siver star to be worn on the ribbon.
