Hello,
There was a discussion about this badge back in 2015:

https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ian+home+guard

If the link doesn't work then search 'Indian Home Guard?'

It was tentatively identified as Bengal Home Guard.

All best

Steve

Bengal...the script is Bengali..or more correctly 'Bangla' ..which means it could either be from the state of West Bengal in India or from Bangladesh.
