Police Gallantry (England)
By J. Peter Farmery

The King’s Police Medal, the King’s Police and Fire Service Medal and the Queen’s Police Medal For Gallantry 1909-1978

A record of the circumstances leading to the award of medals

The Kings Police Medal was introduced in 1909 to recognise, among other things, bravery by police and fire service personnel whilst in the course of their duties. Often referred to as the Policeman's V.C., this is the first unified record of the stories behind the award of the medals.

The medal was available to members of recognised Fire Brigades until 1954, when a separate medal was instituted, and there are over 70 such personnel, whose bravery was rewarded.

The book contains over 300 photographs of recipients which are shown alongside their stories, to enrich the value of this book. References to London Gazette entries, and to where documents can be researched in the Public Records Office are also shown for the benefit of those wishing to undertake further research.
