    Found this in my medal case. Anyone know what it may go with? Looks like it may pre-date ww2 and seems to be silver.  Cheers Brian

    It is the bar / second award for The Territorial Efficiency Medal is a medal of the United Kingdom awarded for long service in the Territorial Army. This award superseded the Territorial Force Efficiency Medal when the Territorial Force became the Territorial Army in 1921. It was superseded by the Efficiency Medal in 1930.

    The bar was used for all three, and of course it was also used in the commonwealth.

    Thank you for that info Mike. Will look through my case again but I think it may have come with other things and I just put it in there and forgot about it. Cheers Brian
