Default Help identify Gaunt Badge

Hi
I wonder if anyone knows what this badge is ? I'm not sure if it's military or not. It was made by Gaunt, London
The S.F is set in black enamel
It measures 25mm in diameter and has two copper fixing loops to the rear
I would be very grateful for any information
Robbo

The six pointed start suggests 'Sheriff' but I think that unlikely for an English made badge.

Perhaps the 'S.F.' means 'State Forces' and pertains to an Indian unit/organization but the style makes that unlikely, IMHO.

'S... Force' ???
