Good day. This is my maternal grandfather. Is his entry here confirmation that a medal was issued to him? Regards, Christelle

Yes Christelle. The entry here means that he applied for his medal. It should then have been issued to him.

Thank you so much for the information. Is there a way to find out when he applied or when he received his medal? Are there records of this kept anywhere?

Christelle,

Yes, there are the forms each applicant completed which are housed at the archives in Pretoria. If you contact a research such as Audrey Portman (details in contacts above) she will be able to obtain copies for you (at a cost).

Good luck and please let us know what you discover.

Best wishes
David
