    I am looking for an example of the South Africa Prisons Department Faithful Service Medal issued from 1959-86. This is the round silver medal similar to the SA Police Good Service Medal for 1923-63 including the same ribbon. The Prisons Department medal replaced the Prisons Service medal in 1959. The obverse has the force title DEPARTEMENT VAN GEVANENISSE/PRISONS DEPARTMENT with the SA coat-of-arms in the center and the reverse with the wording VIR TROUE DIENS/FOR FAITHFUL SERVICE. The serial number/rank/name were stamped on the edge-at this time of issuance with Afrkaans titles. Hopefully one of you will have a spare to sell or trade. Please contact me at pfanning54@yahoo.com. Thank you in advance.

    If you find one, may I have a photo of it for the Images Database, please?
