Many, many thanks for that. Is it common not to have a rank on WW2 SA medals?

As I write this, I realise that I don't think the Canadians or Australians (to my knowledge, two of the few Commonwealth countries that officially named their WW2 medals) put ranks on their medals either.

He has the usual 39-45 Star, War medal, SA Service medal plus the Africa Star. If there was a bar on the Africa medal, it isn't there now as the previous owner has used that dreadful nylon ribbon to dress them up.

At least you have given me a starting point!
