Hello all,

Anyone have anything on this weirdo badge?

I would buy it if you want to sell :)

It's one of the many Native Administration badges from The African continent..

Thanks Khyber...

A badge suggests a uniform (at least to some degree). Were native admin (essentially bureaucratic positions, I assume) uniformed?

Hi Mark,
Am not really sure but there are many such badges and I would guess all the various provinces, states etc had their own uniforms...in a society which was essentially tribal distinctive uniforms and associated paraphernalia I suppose served as markers of identity and authority.
