This evocative 25mm World War II ribbon badge available from the military specialists honours the service of Australian men and women during the Second World War of 1939-1945. The ribbon accompanied the Australia Service Medal 1939-1945 which was instituted in 1949 to recognise the service of members of the Australian Armed Forces and the Australian Mercantile Marine.
The remembrance poppy and ribbon colours are captured in rich enamel fill. The ribbon represents the Royal Australian Navy (dark blue), the Australian Army (khaki), Royal Australian Air Force (light blue) and the Merchant Navy (red). Fixes with a butterfly clip.
