The awards were presented to Cliff and Sydney’s father, Ian (as Sydney is overseas) by NSRI’s Hennie Niehaus.

'We are delighted to be able to recognise Sydney and Cliff’s efforts, which saved the lives of the three youngsters, with this vote of thanks,” said Ronnie Stein, Chairman of the NSRI’s board of Directors in the citation.
