Anyone know what VX service number prefix might mean on Africa Star?

Recommended Posts

Hello, does anyone know the significance of the VX on this man's service number, VX6443 W Frier? It's on the reverse of an Africa Star. 

Also, does anyone know of a South African researcher who can get WW2 service records? 

Thanks 

Duncan.

Hi, are you sure the Africa Star was awarded to a South African? The VX number looks more like an Australian service number prefix, indicating that the person joined or was from the state of Victoria. Just a suggestion as I do not recall seeing that prefix on South African medals

Thanks for that, yes I believe I got that wrong and he's Australian.
