British South Africa Police - cap badges

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know whwn/by whom the "Royal Engineer pattern" BSAP headdress badges were worn? By this I mean the ones with the lion inside a circlet surrounded with a wreath and surmounted by a crown. Was this an officers' badge?

Was the lion with scroll worn by other ranks only? Likewise, when was the lion with the scroll replaced by the plain lion?

The Lion with wreath that looks similar to the RE badge was worn between 1933 and 1945..... The plain lion was between 1949 and 1971......

According to Owen's book on SA badges.....
