Film companies often make some horrendous mistakes with medals, which leads me to wonder how much is wrong about the things I don't know about! There was even an episode of a UK TV drama Judge John Deed in which an army officer was not only wearing inappropriate ribbons, but he was quizzed by the judge on his receipt of a particular medal which he... wasn't even wearing!
In the US show JAG, the US ribbons were generally correct but when a member of a foreign service turned up I had a good laugh. An Australian exchange officer arrived with a most strange 'rack' which was corrected for the second series in which he appeared. (My husband is convinced it was my irate e-mail to the production company that sorted them out!)
