Default Army Air Corps arm of service strip....unfortunately not...

Without any scale, I purchased this light blue & dark blue strip thinking it was an Army Air Corps service strip...when I received it, I unfortunately realized it was not an AAC service strip but medal ribbons....
Does any member have an opinion on what these ribbons are and as well the large red/white/green/red/green/white/red large ribbon ??
All the best

The upper ribbon is a Nigerian Order as shown in the attachment. I think the lower two ribbons are the generic ribbons for use by the RAF and the RN when wearing a mention in despatches when there is no campaign medal to show the award. See 2nd attachment.

As fas as I am aware, there never was an AAC arm of service strip.
Not an expert though so happy to be corrected if wrong.
