Astronomy Society Meritorious Service Medal

Not too much is known about this medal, except what can be read on it.

Saturn dominates on the obverse of this medal, that was issued by GD/FWRA astronomy society. Unfortunately even Google failed to resolve what these letters stand for. Also the number 62 has an unknown meaning. Legend above is: "62 MERITORIOUS SERVICE", below: "GD/FWRA ASTRONOMY SOCIETY AND AMATEUR ASTRONOMY".

The reverse shows an observatory, telescope, rocket, a photographic equipment. Legend above is: "AD ASTRA", i. e. to the stars. Below: "SCIENTIA OMNIA VINCIT", i. e. the science always win.
