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

Cheers,

Phil

Thanks, Bantam, so only 4mm difference in width. Taking maker variables in to account, I think I will put this down to being a cap badge.

Thank you for your help

Cheers,

Phil

Hi Phil,
I took the frame with the badge and measured again and can confirm that your measurements are correct and yes it's a cap badge.
