    Hello
    I don't think the "Dieppe" bar is for a belgian medal
    here are 2 links:
    Dieppe Bar - Veterans Affairs Canada
    Mdaille Commmorative de la Guerre

    but, something is strange, the canadian bar is not like that and yours seems like the belgian bars
    I ask on french forum
    cordially

    another link, belgians were in the RAF in 1942, so your bar is correct
