Chief of the South African National Defence Force Service Medal Parade

One hundred and ninety-two Defence Act and Public Service Act Personnel from the South African Army, South African Air force, South African Navy and South African Military Health Service will be awarded for distinguished conduct and loyal service for fifty, forty and thirty years respectively.

These medals were instituted by a warrant from the South African President on 6 November 1997. The parade is the first of three medal parades scheduled for the remainder of the year and promises a showcase of military ceremonial splendour.
