(Medals not held in collection)
A.W.G. Lawson is the father of Cpl. Laura Lawson.
Riband bars are small sections of the coloured ribbon from which individual medals are mounted or suspended. (Each medal is presented with its own distinctive ribbon.) The ribbon sections of a riband bar are lined up next to each other and usually fixed to a pin so they can be worn like a badge wiith everyday uniform where medals are not required.
