For Gallantry

  • Reginald Rimmer, Sergeant, Police, Bombay, India. Sergeant Rimmer has shown on numerous occasions great courage and coolness. This officer's pluck and presence of mind have evoked the highest praise from his superiors, and he has consistently set a fine example to the Constabulary under him.
  • Joseph Baptista, Excise Constable, Sholapur District, Bombay, India. This Constable was Orderly to the Excise Sub-Inspector, Sholapur, when during the riots in May, 1930, both the Sub-Inspector and the Constable were completely surrounded by the mob, severely beaten and stoned. The Constable, although ordered by the Sub-Inspector to seek safety refused to leave his post and protected the Sub-Inspector who had been rendered unconscious. He stood by the Sub-Inspector continually blowing his whistle till police help arrived. His devotion to duty in the face of great danger undoubtedly saved the life of the Sub-Inspector.
  • Ghulam Mohirud-Din, Sub-Inspector of Police, Punjab, India. This officer, who has enjoyed a reputation for energy, courage, and strength of character throughout his seventeen years' service as a Sub-Inspector, has been called upon, since the inception of the civil disobedience campaign, to deal with many very dangerous situations arising from the presence of large and hostile crowds. On several occasions, while behaving with commendable restraint, he has taken grave risks and he has never been deterred from such steps as were necessary to maintain law and order and the prestige of Government.
