We are very pleased to advise our members that the OMRS Ribbon Bank is now available online in the member’s area of our website. There are over 200 ribbons in stock and ordering has never been easier since you can select the items you want and make payment with a few clicks of your mouse. Members’ prices are very competitive and purchasing ribbon from the Society allows us to invest any profit in purchasing an even wider selection of ribbon for the benefit of members.

In addition to a wide range of replacement ribbon we have limited quantities of original WWI and WWII silk ribbons in stock. These are quite hard to find and we are pleased to be able to make them available to our members. We will continue to add ribbons to the online store and we hope that you find the new online version of the Ribbon Bank accessible and easy to use.

We would like to thank Token Publishing for kindly allowing us to use the ribbon images and numbering system from the Medal Yearbook.
