Default Pagri flash maybe

Hi folks

An unidentified piece of ribbon, could it be a pagri flash, I've seen the colours before but can't think where.
Colours are Dark blue white and maroon
Of course it might be nothing of the sort.
Cheers
Sean

It looks like a medal ribbon to me, similar to a Special Constabulary LS medal but without the extra while edges. There was a London Council LS medal which was similar, B-W-R-W-B, so maybe a piece of that?
Cheers,
Alex

Cheers

Sean - hi,
I reckon it's a Corps of Commissionaires Long Service medal-ribbon.
All the best

That was my first thought but C of C has wider white stripes and narrower bue ones .

Quote:
The ribbon is 32mm wide with a dark red central stripe of 13 mm on each side of which are stripes of white (6mm) and dark blue (3mm).

I believe the Corps may have had a change of suppliers over the years - for medals and possibly ribbons?

The overall width seems to fit but I agree, the individual stripe widths look as though they might differ a tad (mine's in a presentation case so can't get out to check exactly). This is a relatively "new" one...

Apologies for not getting back sooner.
The ribbon is 5cm or 2inches wide
Thanks for all the suggestions.
