Queensland Police Bravery Merit Medal 1906-1917 by Chris Fagg OAM.
Little was known about the rare Queensland Police Bravery Merit Medal when Chris Fagg began to research it in the mid-1980s. Over three decades of painstaking research by Fagg, a former Australian police officer, has resulted in the first complete roll of the 102 medals and four bars awarded to Queensland policemen during the medal’s short life from 1906 to 1917. As well as the roll, this new OMRS publication includes a history of the medal, full details of every incident for which it was awarded, photographs of many recipients and information about their other decorations and medals. This study of a previously long-forgotten award is a must for those interested in Australian medals or police gallantry as well as being a fascinating record of a turbulent time in the history of Queensland.
