Late example in zinc, maker marked (illegible) with short length of original ribbon. This was the basic gallantry award for behind the lines action for non-combatant personnel, viz army nurses, clerical staff, etc.

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
