    Last ribbon looks like Long Service and Good Conduct Medal but it has been sewn on back to front. It should be red then blue.

    Yes it looks like a RAF Warrant Officer's Best Blue as indicated by the badge on the lower sleeve of the tunic.

    Who having served in the RAF would forget the dreaded SWO man.....the Station Warrant Officer who was in charge disciplinary matters on a station and had the ability to make the life of an erk, hell.The RAF Police were his enforcers.

    The rank addressed by those below him as "Sir" and those above him as "Mr"
