Default Frontier Force Regiment Arc Title

A recent purchase: it's a Frontier Force Regiment Arc Title, worsted in red on black cloth: late or post-war, pre-partition? Thank you so much for your knowledge, gentlemen!

True dat. I was going to say 'Pakistani [recently] made' but then found an example of a title with a similar back - on this forum which seems to have been accepted as genuine, so I scratched what I'd written.

The honest answer is 'I don't know'. I have an opinion but it is not based on much evidence, so it's like a hemorrhoid: every ...... has one.

I have a similar one with a King's crown over the title. These, as well as other regiments, apparently date to around the time of independence and the partition of India, and for a short while thereafter.

That would certainly be an explanation: examples of a new industry/product being produced in country where previously the insignia had been produced in the UK or under the direction of British managers. In a 'new army' it may well have been the case that a lower standard of quality was acceptable on a temporary basis.

Depends on what one calls "a short while". Crowns would be applicable until 1956 when Pakistan became a republic. So in theory even Queen's Crowns are possible (though I never saw one used on Pakistan badges, etc.).
