22 Signal Regiment 
 
                           
The two sporting medals without their ribbons were awarded for completing the annual 'Lippstadt Marches'. These were sponsored by 22 Signal Regiment and held over various distances, similar to other such marches including the Rheindalen Marches. They were used by teams as run-ups to the Nimegen marches or as fun days out for those who were formed up into section teams and told they had to complete them. Made all the more fun by the number of beer stalls along the way.

"Im Grossen Lippebogen" means 'within the big bow of the river Lippe', represented visually by the blue line, the river, around the name of the town, 'Lippstadt'.
