    I am trying to identify the bars that a GSM should have, it is disc only. The soldier deffinitely served during WW2 and up until 1958 so it could be a number of bars. The GSM is named to a Corporal and he is a Warrant Officer Class 1 by 1958 which may suggest the bar (or first bar is earlier in his career). The soldier in question is 7010345 Cox (Royal Engineers on GSM).
    Any help would be appreciated.

    For the GSM 1918-1962. Here is a link showing the four different obverses for George VI and Elizabeth II, plus the naming styles on each. This may assist in deciding what possible clasps might be involved.
