Question The cypher GRI

The cypher GRI was used by both George V & George VI Medals & Badges, up to 22 June 1948 (King George VI death). Indian independence sign in 1947, but remained a dominion until 1950 and Pakistan remained a dominion until 1956.

I have a Barbados Police Helmet Plate with GRI - No telling if this is GV or GVI - I guess one could say it was a "generic" issue, circa 1910 to 1948.

I welcome feedback on the above.

Sorry, but your point is?

King George VI DID die on 6th February 1952.

What has my statement got to do with the image you posted? Good image though.
