  • WRANGEL changed the title to Unidentified badge with Panther in silver, collar badge ?

Wrangel, Certainly the Kudu was the heraldic animal of british Somaliland ,between 1950 and 1960 figured in the coat of arms of Somaliland the head of a kudu with a royal crown over it. but the panther figured in the coat of arms of the Italian Somaliland and in that of the Republic of Somalia .

Hello Gentlemen,

Thanks to both of you for your research. I think this silver badge is quite old (1930-50 ?).There is also the possibility that the badge do not refere to  Africa but perhaps Asia as there are panthers in Asia as well.

Cheers

Bill

My North American culture interfering here!  I read 'panther' and immediately thought of the non-spotted North and South American cat - also known as 'painter', mountain lion and jaguar.  This animal clearly has spots, so perhaps a search using the term 'leopard' might turn out more clues.  Just a thought.

Hello Peter, The non spotted great cat named here in Argentina ,Puma is one beast, the Jaguar also existing here is a spotted beast bigger than the Puma and the Panther . Its a Symbol of many  cultures in Central and South America . the badge could be Brazilian or Mexican , for example

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
