Hello

I am wanting to find out if there is a medal roll listing the IDSM as I am trying to confirm that the following was awarded a IDSM

2479, Bakhsh, Sepoy, 1 / 69th Punjabis Regiment

any help would be greatly appreciated

regards

Caz

Sorry nobody of that number received and IDSM between 1914-21, they ceased to be the 69th Punjabis in 1922 and were absorbed into the 2/2 Punjab regt.

Was this the star that was listed on eBay? I think I recall a Star to an 'IDSM' winner being sold, but like Paul says he definitely did not win an IDSM.

There is a 673 Havildar Muhd. Bakhsh 69th Pjbis that did win an IDSM, but obviously not the same chap. You could try returning it?

The 1924 Indian ARMY List lists a Subadar Muhammad Baksh, 2/2 Punjabis as having been awarded the IDSM on Sept. 8, 1922 but this may not be the same man at all. Sepoy to Subadar would be a big jump in 4-6 years.
