Hi all. I'm looking for some Info on this badge. Is it some sort of general service badge? Also what sort of period would it date from? Many thanks.

Hi,

This is the General Service badge, replacing the Ugandan Kings African Rifles Battalions badge,worn Post Independence to end of Idi Amin's regime circa 1979. Replaced by the Liberation Forces Ugandan Peoples Army badge.
