Default Burmese enamel badge.

I am not aware of any Burmese speakers on the forum, but if anyone could offer a translation of the letting on this badge I would be very grateful.

The outline of the borders of Burma are outlined in yellow enamel. The shield in the centre appears to show two keys and a dagger. The circle at top left is possibly a monument, the circle top right is possibly a gateway to the palace at Mandalay or somewhere similar. The lower circle appears to have either a sausage roll or a toilet roll but this might just be a coincidence, as neither of these items are featured in traditional heraldry.

So, my conclusion is that the key to identifying this badge is in the Burmese writing.
