    Default South African WW2 Medal

    Hi there,

    Just noticed that this medal is named. When i bought it i was told it was given to a South African soldier (whether this is true or not?)

    Camera wouldn't focus, but the bottom is named : C275414 C.NOVEMBER

    I cant seem to find any information on this chap. Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance

    Did a quick search on ancestry and it more or less returned zero results. ww2 british medals were never named, but i think s.a. medals were officially named so he would have been south african. Finding out what units has a c before there army number might help find out his unit.

    It's definitely to a S.African. If memory serves the "c" designation stands for "coloured".
    There are guys down here that research these medals, but at a price.
