Mr P J Groenewald (FF Plus) to ask the Minister of Defence and Military Veterans:†
(1) When, with reference to her reply to question 487 on 23 April 2010, does she intend to confer the Closure Commemoration medal, class Commando, on former commando members;
(2) whether she will make a statement on the matter? NW1661E
The South African National Defence Force is busy compiling a list of all the former Commando members who meet the qualifying criteria for the Closure Commemoration medal. As soon as the information is verified, it will be submitted to me for approval.
