Type C: Medals with the small thin type of edge lettering and straight non-swivelling suspenders as used for the Africa Service Medal. Type A is applicable to all medals issued from up to October Type B medals were issued from October to February whereas the type C medals were issued from February right up to the last issue in Under type C there are also variations where a square dot is found after the initials and cases where it is a round dot.
This method of classification obviously does not solve all uncertainties but can be applied in cases where a single example of multiple issue with the same surname and initials falls into one of the above three categories. If, for instance, the record cards and registers indicate that three medals to J. Smit were issued between and there is no way of identifying the individual ones but if a fourth one was issued in it would be possible to isolate that particular J.
All type C discs have two 5mm. Please use the correct ASM suspender when repairing a damaged medal of this type! In the majority of cases this was due to applicants having taken either parole or the oath of neutrality before the end of the war. In other cases, especially early applications from overseas volunteers, it was due to the fact that they were not actually in the field at the end of the war.go to site

Some of the applicants really took chances. At the extreme end of this category surely must fall the application by one HHA Abbenhuis who tried to claim an Anglo Boere Oorlog medal on the strength of him having been a sailor on the Man of War Gelderland that took President Kruger to Holland.
Another interesting but unsuccessful application for the Wound Riband was from a Mrs. However, the Adjudant General notified her that she did no active service: hence, no medal. A certain Mr. Davis claimed that he was temporarily in charge of railways between Van Reenens and Harrismith, gave his rank as a burger and said that he had served part time under Gen. Prinsloo when at Van Reenens. He never claimed this medal and, obviously, in later years he also wanted to be counted among those Oudstryders who proudly wore their Republican medals at volksfeeste. He then obtained a medal issued to another Burgher with his surname, removed the initials and had his own initials engraved instead.
Two of these were schoolteachers who served as voluntary nurses and the others were trained nurses. At least 90 were awarded to members of the Hollander corps, some 40 odd to members of the Scandinavian corps, 20 to the German Commando, 10 to the Foreign Legion under Gen. Some of these especially Hollander served in specific commandos such as the Ermelo Commando, Pretoria commando, etc. Your display name should be at least 2 characters long.
