Picked this up last night along with an H&R 25 automatic, the group is almost like new and not worn much, question does anyone know what the center ribbon on the lower bar is for and why does it have a battle star?

That's the Philippine Liberation Medal, issued by the government of the Philippines. As Robert said, the star indicates either participation in a landing or direct participation in a armed engagement with the Japanese.

You have the correct information there!
You got one bronze star for each battle participated in.
