Title 48th Cavalry (Indian Army) cap badge, white metal
Nationality British Empire
Period 1941-44
Sold

This was an armoured unit of the Indian Army, which was raised as a wartime expedient in 1941 at Lahore from a nucleus of officers and men provided by the 19th KJO Lancers. It was disbanded in early 1944, the men reverting to their former unit. This badge was the white metal version worn by other ranks. The officers' version lacked the tank.

This is a bazaar casting of white metal and it is in excellent condition. It is just over 4cm high.
