Help identify cap badge
1 Attachment(s)
My late father was an inveterate collector of medals and badges. The bulk of his collection has gone off to DNW for auction later in the year but I keep finding badges in the bottom of boxes and the backs of drawers.
This one has me stumped. Can anybody help me identify it? I'm guessing an army corps, but which one?

I think it's Indian police.

Thanks IrishHorse, that gives me a good place to start.

Hi Is this Palestine Police?

Not Palestine Police but it is similar.

This is a pre-1947cap badge of the Indian (Imperial) Police (IP), the forerunner of the present Indian Police Service (IPS).

I collect Indian/Burma Police stuff? Any more badges lying around??? 😊
