I.P.M. Gazette of India 1 January 1934.

‘These officers took part in the operations against the hill tribes in the Kalyanasingpur Valley of the Vizagapatam Agency in January 1933. The operations involved camp life and hard marching day and night in very difficult country and these officers rendered consistently good and ungrudging service in the face of all difficulties and inconveniences. The fine spirit of all six officers kept up the hearts of the men under their command and materially contributed to the complete success of the operations which have, it is hoped, ended a situation that has constituted a menace for several years.’
