Recommended Posts

This just got to me after a long wait.It is a named Pakistan presidential Police Gallantry Medal.:jumping: The medal is a phosthumous award To a Pakistan Ranger with the rank of constable who along with other Rangers was killed in action in 1994.I am just at a beginning of my reseach into this medal and the recipient.The medal is named to (LATE) ALTAF ANWAR, C/1194.I will be adding more of the story of this medal when i find anymore info.This is one of my first world police medals which i have started to collect.If anyone can add any info to this it would be great.Sorry there was no ribbon with this medal and i hear it is a rare ribbon to get.If anyone knows where i can find a ribbon that would also be great

I would say to have a medal specifically for Armed Services or, Police killed in action is unusual. Offhand , I can't think of any other specific Countries. Have you asked Megan if she can help you. I would also suggest that you write direct to the Pakistan Police - explain you have his medal and ask for details and ribbon - tell them it will be shown publicly (which it will on GMIC) and will honour their Force.

Chris, The script on the obverse reads, "Qaid Azam Polis - Pakistan - Shja'at" (Great Leader Police - Pakistan - Bravery). Regards, Owain
