Title Indian Police officer's shoulder title
Nationality British Empire
Period c 1900-48

This small badge (22mm across) was worn on the shoulder straps, along with the rank insignia. It would appear to be a British-made example made from unmarked silver or heavily silver plated base metal.

This amazing unit served not only to control India internally in the days of the Raj, but also fought on the North West and North East Frontiers and in Burma until the Burma Police was formed. They had an extremely distinguished military and civilian record, varying from stepping in to prevent disorder in mixed Muslim and Hindu villages on the various festival days of both communities to chasing robbers in the NWF and sorting out dacoits in Burma.

Its condition is excellent for its age.
