Title Sukkur Police belt buckle from Sindh Province
Nationality British Empire
Period c 1903-48
Price £75.00

This is an other ranks buckle for an Indian policeman in the last 50 odd years of the Raj. It would have been worn on the uniform tunic. Some research would show whether this was one of the paramilitary battalions in this frontier province, or regular local police.

It is of two-piece construction, basically a brass plate with the white metal crown rivetted onto the reverse. 'Sukkur Police' is engraved on the front and then filled in with blacking, most of which still appears intact.

Indian police buckles of this type have only recently begun to surface in the West.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
