Hi KOMalta

Thankyou for your input. Afraid I don't have any definitive answers to your queries.

Good to confirm that the Custom Weigher button does have a large size. I expected as much but in the absence of an item......

Re the embroidered cap badge, I wonder if the blue circle surrounding the central motif is missing any lettering. Perhaps a trip to our Maritime Museum ,may pay off.

Thanks for sharing

GTB

An update, finally I manage to go to the Malta at War Museum and had the embroidered cap badge confirmed by the museum curator/CEO, that it belongs to the Malta Customs.

Also the Marine Police badge was worn by the Marine Police Malta on the pith helmet.

Hope this helps.
