    I don't collect ribbons or medal much, but I have this set of cloth ribbons and I'm wondering if these could have belonged to a WWII pilot. They came with some other items that belonged to a WWII pilot. Any help on what they signify would be great too. I know the first two are the Korean War and the last a purple heart.

    Well i see that occupation medal (white border on both sides with red then black) has a berlin airlift device on it (tiny plane). Thats the only thing that really jumps out to me for being a pilot. I can't identify all the ribbons, perhaps one will say more, but I think it could have easily been a pilots ribbon bar. I would also say yes to the WWII (and post) part in that he has a WWII victory medal ribbon (rainbow multicolored with red in the middle), and an American campaign medal from WWII (under the occupation medal)

    Hi , being British I can only add that the Purple Heart ribbon is the one on it's own at the bottom of the image. Leon.
