A VERY interesting Czech group of international medal documents just sold on ebay that might answer your question. Along with the mans' partisan badges (I have his bio. in the CIA's 1989 Warsaw Pact Who is Who book) were a slew of other documents. I believe the war medal you refer to is the one with the eagle and the yellow (mostly) ribbon? If so, he got one.

I do not know what an SIO and ROH medal is/are though.

Attempted to attach images but received this error message “Error you aren't permitted to upload this kind of file”. However here is a description of the three medals.

1 – The war medal WWII 1944-45 supposedly issued by the Czech gov in exile. It is a bronze medal suspended from a red ribbon it is a Hollow Laurel wreath bisected by a sword with the tip protruding from the bottom. A rampart lion is on the base of the Laurel wreath.

2 – The SLO medal is bronze suspended from a metal bar with the Slogan “SLO’ the medal has a Woman on the left with a slung weapon on the right shoulder. A “Farmer?” is in the medal with both hands holding a rifle horizontal across his body, to his left is another male figure holding a rifle vertical at the top is a Czech flag.

3 – Roh medal suspended from a red ribbon with twin vertical white stripes the suspension is a shell/fan. The medal depicts the Word (?) ROH on a banner which is central overlaying rays. The center is surrounded by the words “ZA PRACI PRO ROZVO(.) ROH”

Many apps for all the drama.

Thanks again and have an uncomplicated day

SLO medal is yugoslav, actually Slovenian.

In this case, SLO means Splošni ljudski odpor (general people's resistance) and it 's a commemorative medal instituted and awarded in Slovenia (then part of SFR Yugoslavia) in 70's and 80's. Approx. 8.000 awarded. It depicts people's resistance - a woman, a farmer, an armed worker and a kid - a partisan's messenger. This medal was awarded to former (WW2) members of resistance (usually those who weren't in partisan units, but supporters and concealed resistance members on the occupied territory), but also to people who merited in post-war defence-strengthening activities etc.
