Hi, I was wondering if someone could confirm my thinking concerning these 2 medals.

KZCS Star for Merit – Officers (SPM) (1990-94/1990-1996)

KZCS Medal for Merit (1991-94/1991-1996)

Insignia: A circular silver medal displaying a traditional head-ring within a wreath of leaves (obverse) and the KwaZulu coat of arms (reverse).

Ignore the ribbons, more than likely the wrong ones.

It's the medals that are the subject, almost identical except for the star !

My thinking is, that the one with the star is the Star for Merit-Officers and the one without the star the medal for Merit AND not 2 versions of the same (2nd) medal.

Can anyone confirm if I'm right/wrong, and if wrong, does anyone have a explanation for the Star.

Also, a picture of the Star for Merit-Officers would be helpfull.

With thanks, Marcon1.
