Hello all, My Dad has recently received his father's (My Grandfather) service records from the NZDF. It was going well until we saw the ribbons on his dress unifrom, all seem to match with his service period of 1947-1965ish except one. It appears to be that of the New Zealand Service Medal 1939-45. Obviously this does not match his service. We can't seem to identify what it is, even looking at Malaysian medals as he was seconded to the Malaysian Navy for a period of time as well has not helped. I am currently mulling over a few scenarios though really have no idea! The most obivious - Its not the 39-45 medal The out of the box - It is the the 39-45 medal and it is his (he was born in 1925) but there is no mention of WWII service in his records. The improbable - Its his and he served in WWII under a assumed name. Can help identify the ribbon? (Unfortunately I don't have access to the uniform in the present time but maybe able to get a photo in a couple of weeks if all goes to plan) This the New Zealand Service Medal 1939-45.
