INDIA WOUNDED MEDAL VARIATION

Here is the India Wounded Medal,but it's an unilingual variation (not listed in the excellent book published by Ed Haynes).

Can someone help to translate the obverse inscription (with attribution engraved on the below part of obverse) ?

You can download the 3rd picture on your computer and then increase its size to translate it.

Sorry to break in where I'm not welcome. This is not the wound medal. It is the West Bengal Governor's Medal. This is why it is in Bengali, not Hindi. The name of the recipient is there at the bottom.

A very brief post to correct some dangerous and persistent errors and misinformation regarding Korea medals above:

Ed,

Many thanks for the corrections and details. I am now hard at work on the new book - there's just too much new and better information out now for me to call it a revision anymore.

I'll be contacting you offline very soon.

Thanks to all.

Oh, Jeff, just like the old times, I'll be calling soon 8>)

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
