Who can tell me more about these medals: 1) FULL SIZE SA ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION MEDAL AWARD TO C.G. CLOETE 28/07/93-AWARDED TO MEMBERS WHO GUARDED THE INSTITUTION,NORMALLY EX POLICE MEMBERS -NUMBERED 50-SCARCE. Are these official, semi-official or just private medals ? Is the ribbon correct ?

I guess that if they did wear all their medals they would not be able to walk straight due to the weight of them 😁 They could use it as a bulletproof vest, the whole front of them would be covered.
  13. And if you would all include your full name and address than things would make it a lot easier 🀣
