Title British Indian police pouch belt ornament
Nationality British Empire
Period c 1902-48
Price £60.00

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.

It is a die-struck white metal badge (5.25cm across) with an EPNS finish. It has three screw posts on the reverse for fitting to the pouch belt.

There is a break between the laurel wreath and the crown on one side and there is some distortion to the badge itself, together with the odd patch of verdigris and dried mud.

testimonials

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.
