The medal ribbons for Pip, Squeak and Wilfred, recipients who received the 1914 Star or "Mons Star" medal with the clasp were also entitled to attach a small silver heraldic rose to the ribbon when just the ribbon was being worn. It should be remembered that recipients of this medal were responsible for assisting the French to hold back the German army while new recruits could be trained and equipped. Collectively, they fully deserve a great deal of honour for their part in the first sixteen weeks of the Great War. This included the battle of Mons, the retreat to the Seine, the battles of Le Cateau, the Marne, the Aisne and the first battle of Ypres. There were approximately 378,000 1914 Stars issued.
