Benito Mussolini's ribbon bar

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

I have spent considerable time trying to find out what Italian ribbons/medals Mussolini wore. I am non compos mentis when it comes to Italian ribbons, but even at that, there was little to be found on the net to be honest.

Now that I have found out this information I would like to make it available to members here. I know it does not seem like much, but as a ribbon bar researcher, this type of information is like gold dust! :happy:

Best,
Pierce

Very  interesting  project  Pierce. I  love  the  March  on  Rome  medal  in particular. Unfortunately  mine is  not  named  but  they  were issued  with  quite  an ornate  certificate. I  researched  this  medal  some  years  ago and  struggled  to  get  a  replacement  ribbon  for it. I finally  sourced  one in  the  UK.

 

Do  you intend  to  make  up  a  duplicate ribbon  bar?

@Jim- No, I just wanted an electronic/computer record of his awards.

I have been told that this may actually be his originally, taken from when his residence was sacked.

Sorry for reviving a dead thread, I just thought it may be found interesting.

Brian,

Thanks for posting this. It certainly is of interest. Have you a photo of the reverse?

Kind regards,
Pierce
