Foreign Decoration Question


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

This US AAF Major's uniform recently sold on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&item=160767314295&nma=true&rt=nc&si=tKy9VB50KPiU%252BalKaJlt8iteuDo%253D&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc). The jacket (and four other uniforms sold separately) belonged to a SHAEF AAF major, Major Meister.

 

My question is: what is the middle ribbon, second row - the scarlet one with palm? I have been looking all over, but can't identify it. It's been nagging me, so any help would be great!

 

Thanks!

This will help for next time identifying ribbons
