Default Help identify cap badge

My late father was an inveterate collector of medals and badges. The bulk of his collection has gone off to DNW for auction later in the year but I keep finding badges in the bottom of boxes and the backs of drawers.
This one has me stumped. Can anybody help me identify it? I'm guessing an army corps, but which one?
Thanks

This is a pre-1947cap badge of the Indian (Imperial) Police (IP), the forerunner of the present Indian Police Service (IPS).

I collect Indian/Burma Police stuff? Any more badges lying around??? 😊
