Hi, I'm looking for good photo's (obverse and reverse) of the following Lebowa Police medals.

LP Cross for Gallantry (1990-1995)
Apparently never awarded.

Insignia: An elaborate gold cross depicting two gold leopards on a red octagon (obverse) and the Lebowa coat of arms (reverse).

LP Star for Distinguished Leadership (1990-1995)

Insignia: A silver-gilt circular medal with an engrailed edge tipped with ten balls, enamelled green and displaying a ten-pointed star with a gold flame on a white roundel (obverse), and the Lebowa coat of arms (reverse).

LP Star for Outstanding Service (1990-1995)

Insignia: Same as the Star for Distinguished Service, but in silver.

LP Establishment Medal
Issued to founder members of the force.

Insignia: A circular silver medal depicting the LP badge (obverse) and the Lebowa coat of arms (reverse).

LP Star for Merit (1990-1995)
For 30 years service.

Insignia: A circular silver-gilt medal displaying a tree aloe in the centre of an 18-pointed star within an engrailed border (obverse) and the Lebowa coat of arms (reverse).

Thank you for your help.
