Bit of a mystery badge. I am fairly sure it's a commonwealth patch but really have no idea. Would like to know what it is so if someone can identify it I would really appreciate it.

Cheers

Chris

Thanks very much for that Arthur. Funnily enough I had a feeling this was an Indian army patch. Do you not what period this patch would be from? Is it post WW2?

Cheers again.

Hi Chris,

H Cole's 'Formation Badges of WWII':

Sign was adopted in August 1942. Originally designated Madras District, in November 1942, renamed for security reason, 105 L of C Area. On 1st April 1946, it assumed the title Madras Area.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Arthur
