militaria item Zhob Levy Corps pouch badge, hallmarked silver
- British Empire
After the annexation of the Zhob District in Baluchistan (1889), the Zhob Levy Corps was raised and came under the control of an English officer (Major), who would have been posted as a Political Officer, not as their commandant (Political Officers were the forerunners of what later became the Indian Political Service).

militaria item North Waziristan Militia pouch belt badge
- British Empire
This exotic unit was raised under Lord Curzon's famous 'forward' frontier policy starting in 1900 when, in the North West Frontier Province, the army was withdrawn from tribal territory and replaced with disciplined tribal irregulars under British officers. Four battalions of militia were formed in Waziristan totalling 3,200 men.

militaria item Probyn's Horse belt plate centre, white metal
- British Empire
This would have been worn until the amalgamation of Probyn's Horse with the 12th Cavalry in 1922. It would appear to be an other ranks example and was worn on a rectangular white metal plate. Probyn's Horse became King Edward's Own Lancers in 1906, having sported the Prince of Wales title since 1876.

militaria item British Indian police pouch belt ornament
- British Empire
This is the badge which was worn on the pouch belt by the officers of the British Indian police. The police was divided into two components in India: the paramilitary police battalions who served on the frontiers (viz Burma and NWF) and the local police, who kept order in the cities and towns of India.

militaria item Customs badge
- British Empire
This little badge (7.5cm across) may be of Indian parentage, inasmuch as its provenance is Indian and it appears to be a one-peice bazaar casting in brass. I think it would have been worn on the top pocket of a tunic, as it appears to be too large to have been worn as a shoulder title.

militaria item Ceylon Mounted Rifles martingale badge
- British Empire
The parent unit (Ceylon Light Infantry) was raised in the last quarter of the 19th century from planters, purely British European personnel, and served with distinction in the Boer War and later on in WW1 at Gallipoli. The Ceylon Mounted Infantry contingent then became Ceylon Mounted Rifles in 1906.
