Understanding the difference between Gammon and Ham?

When people ask what is the difference between gammon and ham it is quite simply that the gammon joint will be sold raw and needs to be cooked.  Once you have cooked the joint it then becomes ham.

Ham is sold already cooked, often sliced, or dry-cured and ready for eating.

Gammon is the name given to the meat from the hind legs of a pig that has been cured in the same way as bacon.
