This badge was privately made on the orders of Lord Beresford to distinguish his police for the city of Alexandria when he had to maintain peace on the streets there after the landing of the British forces in 1882.
If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.
Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...

The tipstaff arrived safe this morning, and I am very pleased with it.
