Default What's this? Manufacturers sample?

Hi folks

This was a speculative purchase a while ago.

Obviously for West Africa and the Gold Coast.

Ashanti Goldfields Company maybe, dated 1947.

"Shirt badge for wear under Zouave Jacket" and design for " Helmet badge embroidered but smaller"

Is this a manufacturers sample, who would have worn it/them
Regards
Sean

The mines had a security guard force. Most likely for them, they had a metal cap badge similar in design.
