Default Indian electrical mechanical engineers IEME

Hey

Does anyone know why some of the ieme badges had the imperial crown and some had the normal crown on them from what I see the badges would only have been from 1943 to 1947 is that right ???

Thanks for any thoughts

Just a guess, but perhaps the 'normal crown' is post '47 and pre-Republic.

I don't think everyone went to the Lions of Ashoka to replace the crown at the same time. Many units were very eager to preserve their 'royal' ties, even after independence. Just a thought.
