Default Wearing decorations on greatcoats?

During colder seasons and greatcoats were worn over tunics, would decorations such as medals and ribbon bars be worn on the greatcoat or was that against regulations?

Never sen any decorations on a greatcoat, apart from sleeve shields.

Can't think of anything worn on a greatcoat other than cuff-titles; maybe lanyards or aiguillettes.


Best,

I’m sure somewhere, there’s a photo of someone wearing a decoration on a greatcoat. But I have not seen one to-date and the answer is no, decorations weren’t worn on greatcoats.
