You may have already seen these articles but here is what I have found on the internet.  A very nice award by the way.  Please post a picture of the reverse of the award.

Hello Gordon,

thank you for your efforts. I also know the order only in the same form pictured on the web-sites from you.

Here is the reverse of the order:
