Appointments ceased[edit]

More detail should be given on this. It is my understanding that appointments could still be made in theory, but is this true? --Daniel C. Boyer 15:42, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

Just a possibly pedantic note - but Curzon is sporting only the star of the order of the star of India, the mantle and chain are of the order of the Indian Empire as is claimed - though I assume no one cares, the caption is technically in error. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.96.38.204 (talk) 00:40, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Seniority of British chivalry orders[edit]

I believe that the Order of St. Michael and St. George is senior to the Star of India. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.225.176.174 (talk) 18:50, 19 December 2007 (UTC)


I have on a number of occasions seen Viceroys, or former Viceroys, having the post-nominals "GMSI", which stands for Great Master of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India. Should this be mentioned in the article? That the ex officio great masters used yet another form of post-nominals?

Lord Canning[edit]

He was viceroy at the time of the order's creation. Is there a reason he wasn't granted the order? john k (talk) 21:21, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
