My SADF Collection

Wessel Gordon

Recommended Posts

Here's a picture of my entire SADF collection. Please excuse the miniatures and poor zoom but it's hard to take a picture of 12 medals in one picture.

Left to right: Honoris Crux (1975), Danie Theron Medal, Pro Merito Medal, Military Merit Medal, Pro Partia Medal, General Service Medal (GSM), Southern Africa Medal, Unitas Medal, John Chard Decoration, De Wet Decoration, John Chard Medal and De Wet Medal.

I have full-size medals of all of these except the first two so that's why I took a picture of the miniatures. If you want clearer pictures feel free to ask.

Thanks Peter.

Just waiting for us to be settled in our new house (which might take a while since we have to sell the old one first) then my collection is going in a shadow box. I'm in contact with a local guy that cleans and mounts medals for a living to help me clean them properly but when it comes to mounting me and him have very conflicting ideas so I'm waiting till after the move to decide.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
