Unusual colour/patina. Lettering appears very deep, is it a thick casting? Could you post a pic of the back please.

The British Indian Army had a large number of animal transport units using camels, horses, mules and bullocks. I believe the badge to be that of one of the Camel Transport units.

I agree with Hoot, Indian rather than Imperial Camel Corps whose shoulder titles were quite different.
