615. Kings Police Medal. Geo. V. 1st type. Coinage Head. Gul Mohammed. Ex. Foot Constable Peshawar Dist. L/G 12-2-1917 - “At 1.45 a.m. on the 31st of March 1916 the house of a Hindu in ‘B’ Division of Peshawar City was attacked by a party of 20 to 25 armed dacoits, mostly afridis. The alarm was raised and the main body of the dacoits was engaged by a party of police from the Police Station. Hearing the firing, a patrol consisting of a Head Constable and two Constables set off in the direction of the disturbance. They, however, unexpectedly encountered a picket put out by the dacoits. The picket fired a volley at the police patrol with the result that Foot Constable Gull Mohomed had his right knee shattered by a bullet. He fell and lay in the open whilst his two companions proceeded to climb on to the roof of a house in order to obtain a better position. The dacoits endeavoured to seize the wounded constable’s musket, but in spite of his wound he kept firing as he lay and defended himself successfully. He not only saved his arms but wounded one of the dacoits. Foot Constable Gul Mahomed’s conduct was most gallant. His wound was so severe that his leg had to be amputated the next day and as he lay in the open he was fully exposed to the dacoit’s fire”. (NEF) £895

Gazette of India 2.6.1934 - “On the 12th July 1931, Constable Mohammad Ibrahim Khan formed one of a party of police and villagers who were in pursuit of a dangerous gang of dacoits which, led by one Bahaduir Singh, had been responsible for no fewer than 14 dacoits during the first half of that year. Early in the morning four of the gang were sighted on the further bank of a river armed with guns. Although it was breast deep in flood, the police party forded the river and, after an exchange of shots, Constable Mohammad Ibrahim and two villagers who were in the van succeeded in overtaking and capturing one of the dacoit’s a mile away. Although the dacoits quickened their pace, Constable Mohammad Ibrahim and one villager went on and again overtook and captured another of them. A third dacoit was intercepted and arrested by a village chaukidar and his brother though not before the chaukidar had been shot and wounded in the chest. There remained Bahadur Singh who fired several times in the air to frighten his pursuers; but without slackening their pace they eventually caught and arrested him. Constable Mohammad Ibrahim showed great courage and initiative in pursuing the dacoits and personally apprehending two of them.” (NEF) £650
