WWII British medal group of four campaign medals, each with its respective ribbon. The medals are named to Gunner 1st Anti-Tank Battery S.A.A. Bombardier JOHN VAN NIEKERK (b. 1915), regimental number 143439. Van Niekerk went Missing in Action on 19/6/1942, but confirmed on 8/8/1942 to be a Prisoner of War, and was released 12/5/1945. Included are the 1939-1945 Star and the Africa Star, both are engraved ‘143439 J. Van Niekerk’ on backside; the War Medal 1939â€“1945 and the Africa Service medal, both are engraved ‘143439 J. Van Niekerk’ on the rim. Included are copies of four pages of Van Niekerk’s service record. Very good.
