The Sydney Morning Herald, Sydney, Australia, 15 November 1916
It is stated in Army Orders that the King has ben pleased to approve of the following emblems being worn on the ribands of certain decorations and medals, when worn on undress and service dress garments, to denote that the wearer has been awarded a bar or bars to the original decorations or medal for subsequent acts of bravery, or for further distinguished conduct in the field:—
Victoria Cross: A miniature replica of the Cross in bronze; one or more according to the number of bars awarded.
These emblems do not form part of the decoration or medal, and are not to be worn on the riband when the decoration or medal is worn in original on the full-dress tunic or jacket, or in miniature on the mess jacket.
Two roses or crosses, as the case may be will be supplied with each bar when then original award is made.
