Ladies/Gents,

Can anyone tell me what medals these officers are wearing? I can make out the Golden & Diamond Jubilee Medals, but what's the black and yellow looking ribbon? Also the tall chap in the middle on the top picture appears to be wearing a Police LSGC, am I right in thinking that the RGP are awarded the same LSGC as British main land police get? Whatever the black and yellow medal is the chap third from the right appears to have a clasp on his medal? 

On the bottom picture the chap seated has four medals, one of which appears to be the Golden Jubilee Medal, but what are the others? The first one appears to be the Colonial Medal, do the RGP get this medal instead of the QPM? Most of these chaps appear to have more medals than the average UK bobby gets am I missing out on a collecting sphere here?

The British Overseas Territories police forces are not awarded the PLS & GC medal. Instead the receive the BOT Police Long service medal (I think that's its title). It replaced the old Colonial Police Medal several years ago. There are also bars to it for years in addition. They are also entitled to the QPM. Your photos show the Royal Gib. Police Commissioner and also the Gib. Defence Police (green & white cap bands). The Chief Officer of the GDP is a seconded UK officer and he is wearing the PLS &GC medal.

Dave.
