Hello John,
Many thanks for your identification of number 51 as the WW1 Royal Dublin Fusiliers collar badge. A great spot with an elephant above a tiger as you stated.

Kind regards
Bill

Hi Bill,

It looks like you’ve hit the nail on the head with the motto that was unfortunately too small to read in the photo. It’s not Uganda but Kenya, the coat of arms of the city of Nairobi.

Kindest regards,

Zob.

See attached link for Nairobi coat of arms:

Hi Zob,

Thanks for your reply about the Nairobi coat of arms badge.That's been a big help. Unfortunately the link itself doesn't work.

Kindest regards
Bill

Hi Bill,

Sorry about the link. I’m a bit of a noddy when it comes to technology. The photo I was trying to send you the link of shows a picture of the coat of arms and is described thus:

On the balcony of Nairobi City Hall

Kenya, From the balcony of Nairobi City Hall, Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh wave to the crowds. They stand between two of the building's four frontal pillars and below them is a large pennant with two lions either side of a coat of arms. Below the coat of arms is the motto "CONSILIO FIDE VIGILANTIA.'' In front of the building flies a flag bearing the Royal crest, February 1952. 2001/090/1/4/1/63.

Hello Zob,

Thanks for the picture you sent. It worked this time. It would have taken me forever to identify the badge. But whether it actually represents a unit or regiment is hard to say.

Bill

Hi Bill,

I would say definitely civil/administration.

Kindest regards,

Zob.
