No idea, but if you post it on the South Asian Military Heritage page, Ashok Nath will have more information and one of the members may be interested in acquiring. Ashok is incredibly knowledgeable - probably has the second best collection of Indian badges in exiatance - and honest.

I posted this in the Indian Section :

From a 1906 article

Quote:
The uniform of the Corps, as the illustrations show, is much the same as that of the Native Army, the distinctive differences being an Army Bearer Corps badge worn on the shoulders, and a "kukree" in place of a bayonet.
