    This medal is definitely South African - note the distinctive South African type suspender when compared to other Commonwealth ones. The M prefix suggests that the recipient was of Malay origin (there were a number of prefixes - M, C (for Coloured), F (for WAAF), W (for WAAS), SAP (for Police), etc. There are a number of local registered researchers to have access to SANDF records who will be able to obtain a copy of his service record - you can try Dewald Nel at dewald@nelantiques.co.za
