Ribbon required for Atjeh Campaign Medal

Berichtdoor NBX Prez » 05 Jan 2013, 14:50

Hello,

This is my first post on this site. I am based in the UK with a little bit of Nederlands, but I apologise for posting in english - my dutch medal vocabulary is non-existent.

I am searching for the correct ribbon so that I can court-mount my great-grandfather's Atjeh campaign medal. Here is a photo of the medal and clasp:

Atjeh 1873-1896 Voor Krijgsverrigtingen

I have previously emailed a Dutch website without success. I believe the ribbon consists of yellow and green vertical stripes but would appreciate confirmation. If anyone can supply about 20cms of ribbon or point me in the direction of a reliable supplier, it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Des

Unfortunately Van Wielik can't supply this ribbon. Are there any more suggestions that might be helpful?

No problem! Hope they can help you, the couple that run Ondescheidingenhuis are both senior Dutch Airforce NCO's, nothing but good things to say about them!

Bump!

I've hit a complete brick wall on the search to find any ribbon for this medal. For old UK medals, there are plenty of suppliers of ribbon, but sadly the same isn't the case for medals in the Netherlands. If anyone has any recent news on this, please reply!

No reply from Onderscheidingenhuis? I can't imagine they wouldn't be able to steer you in the right direction, if not able to provide the ribbon themselves...
