Title WW2 volunteer medal for service overseas, sterling silver
Nationality South African
Period 1946
Sold

Men and women who served for at least two years in any official voluntary organisation in South Africa or overseas qualified for this medal so long as the service was both voluntary and unpaid. Those who already had the Africa Service Medal were ineligible, but exceptions exist. 17,500 of these were issued in sterling silver in 1946.

Its condition is near EF, with a short length of original ribbbon, which is a little age stained.

Just to let you know that the kokarde [cockade] arrived today. Looks great. Definitely original.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
