Default Royal Pakistan Engineers

Can anyone provide a reference as to the date range this badge was worn. Although Pakistan achieved independence in August 1947, it remained a dominion until March 1956. Thanks.

I assume they inherited that from the pre independance Indian Engineers (formed 1911?). As far as I know it was made Royal Indian Engineers later in 1946.

When that is correct, it is no wonder that both corps, after the split, would claim the Royal status.

I have the same problem defining the actual years of use for my Royal Pakistan Artillery badges and Shoulder titles. I thought it was only two years and then no “Royal” Anyone care to set me straight? Regards, David J.

Can't help with dates but found an old auction lot with some nice photos.

Thumbs up

Thanks to all the feedback and a big BRAVO ZULU to Mike for the pictures and web site info. I tried the same for the Indian Engineers...Nothing, at least I couldn't find anything, but then it must be said that I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to IT stuff.
