This is a very odd mini medal bar I'm assuming to an army air force officer! The bar is 8x medals long, the construction isnt insanely well do and I would assume the veteran did it himself! Where it gets stranger is the medal combination Air Medal American Defense American Campaign Asiatic campaign WW2 victory Army occupation medal Phillipines liberation British OBE So what does this tell us well it's actually fairly confusing, most likely we have a army airforce officer who was in the service before ww2 started he saw action mainly in the pacific evident from the asiatic medal and the phillipines liberation medal.
Phillipines liberation medals are not commonly found on AAC medal bars so that is odd! Then the fact he was also award an OBE or order of the British empire, this has been in rare cases been awarded to army soldiers and high ranking officers! This many make a very interesting research project and I feel it may defiantly be possible to identify, he clearly wasnt to high of a rank and maybe only served for the war time and retired?
