    Wow Tom,

    This is fantastic information! Thank you for helping research this

    I'd like to fine a ribbon to add for display purposes. Is there someone in the UK that makes aftermarket ribbons?

    Yep, there are quite a lot so shop around but here is one;

    Long Service, Meritorious and Good Conduct Medal Ribbons

    I am sure you know but for good measure; the ribbon you need for this medal is the pre- 1917 plain crimson. Also, just in case it is useful, this is the 2nd type of 1859 as it seems to have the smaller font on the reverse (the Hanoverian crest was dropped in 1837 and the swiveling scroll suspension was added in 1855). From 1901 the obverse changed to show the coinage head of the reigning monarch.

    This award remains extant and as already stated the ribbon changed to the current type with a white stripe on each edge in 1917. In 1920 the suspension became fixed and when in 1930 the title was changed to "The Long Service and Good Conduct Medal (Military)" a fixed bar was added bearing the inscription "REGULAR ARMY" or the name of a dominion. My own bears the image of the current monarch HM Queen Elizabeth II. It is a very precious medal to those who hold it as it represents a great deal of hard work over many years that would otherwise not be visibly represented and speaks volumes by its absence rather than presence.

    I hope this is helpful.
