This book recounts in detail each of the incidents in respect of which members of An Garda Siochana - even today an unarmed force - were awarded the Scott Medal, a uniquely Irish gallantry decoration. Based on a range of published and unpublished sources, along with the personal recollections of still serving Gardai and including outline career details for each medal recipient, it is the first compilation of its kind in respect of Irish police bravery awards. It represents not only a fitting tribute to those named therein but is also an important contribution to the history of the Force and to the Social History of the Irish State.
