This organisation dates back to 1963 and the underlisted drivers have been recognised.
Unfortunately the website doesn't seem to say for what actions they were commended, though I have guessed at some.
Can anyone fill in the gaps ( I've listed them in order of what I believe to be the most prestigious award) ?

During the Polish round of the 1984 European Rally Championship, Krupa and Mystkowski stopped to help Benny Carlsson, who car had crashed heavily into a ditch. The Poles lost 24 minutes and dropped from 3rd place to 13th place.
