Navy Cross - Unusual Blue Color Ribbon


Recommended Posts

Navy Cross with an unusual lighter shade of blue color ribbon.   The medal may almost appear black in the photo but is more of a dark chocolate color.   This medal belonged to a very good friend.  But since his passing I don't know the story behind this.

It does appear to be a 3 piece construction early Navy Cross, hard to be sure from the photos. Would need more detailed photos of the center discs to be sure. The ribbon is some kind of UK replacement type IMO, and the brooch is not original to the medal.

and is the ribbon 1 1/2 inches across?

Ribbon measures just under 1.5".  At a close look it appears not to be three piece but one piece construction.
