Default Unknown badge-help please

Hi all, I am new to the forum and trying to ID the attached badge. It bears similarities to a Sarawak Ranger badge which I have seen on the net, motto “Dum Spiro Spero”, shield, and animal. My father served in a Special Forces operation in British North Borneo in WW2, so I suspect its origin is there. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I would agree very likely to be from Sarawak.
