At least 60 members of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) were awarded with Loyal Service Medals for 30 and 40 years’ service during a parade at Kimberley’s Army Support Base on Friday (19/10).

The presentation was conducted by the Surgeon General, Lt Gen. Aubrey Se­dibe, who regarded the recipients as deserving members who have rendered good service in the defence force.

He lauded them for their loyalty and dedication in the execution of the SANDF Mandate.

Sedibe highlighted the Military Code of Conduct: “I will strive to improve the capabilities of the SANDF by maintaining high discipline, safeguarding property, developing skills and know­ledge and performing my duties diligently and professionally”.

Sedibe said a soldier does not boast about his or her service, and that medals are the mouth piece as they reflect the bearers’ history, bravery, merit and loyalty in support of various activities of the SANDF.
