  1. PS: Has anyone any idea from which book this comes, would like to know. Thanks. PPS: Just found the answer = Awards of the South African uniformed public services, 1922-1987: The South African Police, South African Railways Police, South African Prisons Service – 1988 by: S Monick (Author)
  2. Hiya, just found this on the WWW. PS: Has anyone any idea from which book this comes, would like to know. Thanks.
  3. The first one is from Kwazulu (former South African Homeland). It looks like the Kwazulu Correctional Services KZCS Medal for Merit (1991-94) Insignia: A circular silver medal displaying a traditional headring within a wreath of leaves (obverse) and the KwaZulu coat of arms (reverse). However, yours is with a star above the headring (different version ??) 2nd. medal is indeed from Surinam. moed = courage. beleid = policy. (but can also mean behaviour (conduct)). trouw = loyalty.
  4. Hi, the following are all South African Department of Military Veterans medals awarded only to uMkhonto weSizwe (MK) veterans. Can anyone tell me what they are and for what the are awarded. With many thanks, Marcon1. PS: Are there also other medals from this Department ?? I know of these 3. Military Veterans Decoration in Platinum . Class 1 - Highest Order with two Elephant tusks. Class 2 - Order with one Elephant Tusk. Class 3 - Order with no Elephant tusks. The lowest order.
  5. Not 100% sure, but I think it''s one of those Freemasons medals, or some other organization.
  6. Thanks Arthur for your reply. I know about the fire and police medals. Note absence and presence of Protea flower on back of suspender, also SILVER marked. Clear Protea flower on suspender and fully hallmarked. 3 different types of long service medals. 150 years Fire Brigade anniversary Medal.
  7. The middle part is Schleswig Holstein. Than I think it says KuK (konigliche und kaiserliche - king and emperor). German Gothic writing is always difficult to read.
  8. Hi, I need more info about this medal. It's a South African medal (City of Cape Town) 'Law Enforcement Civic Amenities' . Is this a police medal or something else ? Which city department issued this medal ? Thanks.
  9. Thanks guys for the info. Regards, Marcon1.
  10. Hi, can anyone tell me what medal this is. It's a South African medal (City of Johannesburg), but that's all I know. What does the abbreviation N.E.A.D. A.N.B.S. mean (English/Afrikaans ??). Also, what was it issued for ? Thank you for your help.
  11. Hi Wessel, Most of these British star medal ribbons can be bought on Ebay or Bidorbuy. Mostjy in 15cm lenghts. Success.
  12. Hi Wessel, Did you buy the R450 one offered by blankbooks on Bidorbuy ? I bought the R500 from them and hope to receive it by mail this week. Knowledge is never to expensive.
  13. Hi Jan, Thanks for the pictures. I've added them to my listings, now I at least know what they are and how they look like when I see them on Ebay or Bodorbuy.
  14. Hi Jan, Could you post close ups of the following 11 medals. The first one is a new one for me, the others I only have a reverse picture or a picture which is different (the 6th. medal has a blue centre on the picture that I have and the 8th one is missing a star between the wreath). Anyway, a clear reverse AND obverse picture of the 11 medals would be very appreciated. With thanks (Dank U). Marco.
