Default Kudu badge

Hi All,
Here is a small cast brass kudu badge which I think may be associated with the Sudan Police, possibly a collar badge. Measures 42X22mm approx.

Can anyone please date it?

Thanks,
Tinto

Hi Khyber,
Thanks for your information. I have found a picture, hope I'm not infringing any rights here, of the Kordofan Province Police badge.

However, my badge has no sign of being attached to a scroll.

Regards,
Tinto

Yes could well be a collar though i'm not aware if they had collar badges. Infact never seen a photo of any Sudan policeman with a cap badge even. They had some lovely badges though.

The Kudu is on my wants list, some day i must get one

I think the cap badges were only worn by British senior officers, either seconded or on contract.
