    Where can I find info on named Indian medals from the 1960's-70's ?


    Recommended Posts


    I have several indian medals from the 1960's-70's with naming on it.

    Can anyone tell me where to go (look) for information about these persons.

    For example: 

    INDIA 1971 20 YEARS LONG SERVICE MEDAL, Named: 14470446 HAV S NATH, ARTY, Cu-Ni. (MYB: I-65).                   

    INDIA 1971 9 YEARS LONG SERVICE MEDAL, Named: 1C-12070 A-MAJ. K.M. SETH, ARTY, Cu-Ni. (MYB: I-66).                  

    INDIA 1973 PASCHIMI STAR, Named: 3366417 SEP JOGA SINGH, SIKH R., Bronze. (MYB: I-37).         

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Marnon1

    Not much can be found on modern Indian medals, however I did find that A-Maj. Seth was made a Substantive Brigadier December 29, 1989: https://archive.org/details/in.gazette.csl_weekly.1989-05-20.O-0593-1989-0020-25631/page/n20/mode/1up?q=Seth.


    This may be him: https://cgvidhansabha.gov.in/FrameSet/GovernFrameset-4.html 



    I think it highly likely that it is, and he had a very distinguished career.


    His number should read IC, not 1C

    Hi Michael,


    Thanks for the information.

    I'm still trying to sell the medal on the Dutch 'MARKTPLAATS' site.

    Until now no takers ?

    As for his number, there is a clear 1 before C.


    With kind regards,
