South Africa Medal pics

Recommended Posts

Megan, thanks for the pics, they are great.

I am really fascinated at how Decorations for acts of gallantry in the saving of lives can be 'politically incorrect'????

This appears to be the silver class of the decoration: iPhrothiya yeSiliva/Silver Protea, but the ribbon is that of the Nkwe ya Gauta/Golden Leopard, which is the highest decoration for bravery.

Pics and details of all current SA National Defence Force medals (and pics of earlier SA military decorations and medals) are available on the SANDF website:

Hi Norman - Not sure if you received my message on the Transkei Flashes topic. Would you be able to find some Pictures of Modern SA Groups for me?

Hi Gary

I did. I'm just on leave at the moment and wasn't near my regular internet connection. Will be on the look out.

Have a great day.
