Default Lushai Brigade Formation Sign

Was quite pleased to add this to the collection. Coming this week from a group of signs brought home by a US Army Officer. Interesting handwritten note to the reverse regarding when,where it was bought and for the price paid. The reverse has a hinged pin attached for wear. Hope you enjoy Jack

There are several variations of this hand embroidered badge, also printed issue.
The note on the one you illustrate is particularly nice.

A great badge with a real history.

Did anyone else see this related item on Ebay recently?
