Default Nyasaland Prisons, cap or collar?

Hi All,

This is a recent acquisition, which I am wondering if it is a cap or collar badge.

Its pretty polished out on the front, but its got a nice 'Firmin London' maker mark on the back of the scroll.

Its no where near as big as the Nyasaland Police badge that I have. It measures 4.6 x 4 cm. Lugs East and West.

Showing the police badge just for any interest, this has lugs North and South. (No back picture, sorry).

Any opinions greatly appreciated, thanks
