    I am not too sure on this bar, as it is the only one I have ever seen in person. If anyone has a pic of one that would be great to compare.

    Hmm...mine seems to be different.

    Both of those examples have the "Dieppe" written on a raised background with no border, and mine is inset into a frame almost...

    man I hope this one isn't a fake, I paid dearly for it...

    thanks for posting the pic Pierre

    I don't like the 'tarnished' look to it, and it seems smaller
    than the one in the photo. Can't say if they are faking
    these, don't know for sure.


    I've personally met a veteran who was wearing one.
    I'll see if I can find the photo and post it..........







    Regards, Steve.

    The "tarnish" was the camera flash hitting the bar funny. It took a while to get that shot with lots of adjusting lights and cussing.

    I see that the bar in the photo, and the one from the website wrap around the ribbon, where as mine is a three pronged pin that passes through the ribbon.

    This is an image of my grandfathers Dieppe Bar on his voluntary service medal. This medal is in my possession passed on to me from my father from his father who I also knew until he passed in 2001

    It seems I'm unable to post my image but my grandfathers medal looks identical to the post from Pierre N's link with the wider bar
