Reminds me of the Pink Panther too, it also looks like the figure is doffing a top hat with it's right arm/paw, the halo being the underside of the brim.

Hi Billy

In addition to removing "Auxiliaries" from the scroll the section between the tail and scroll stating "Police" has been removed entirely. Very odd.

British North Borneo buttons

Good evening

New in this week: the North Borneo Police is 13mm and I’d say a cap button (so probably fairly rare); the North Borneo Prisons is 17.5mm. Both are marked Firmin London.

Hi Bill

Could be talking havers, but wasn't this used by the force between the Trucial Oman Scouts and whatever the UAE army is today? I'm sure an expert will put me right if not.
