Unidentified badge with Panther in silver, collar badge ?

Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen,

I need help identifying this badge (made by Firmin - London) which I suspect to be an Officer's badge for some Regiment.

Cheers

Bill

Once I saw a similar badge and was related to British Somaliland in the post WW2

Hello Bayern,

Thanks for this first comment. I thought that the Kudu was the emblem of British Somaliland ?

Cheers.

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 .

The only connection I can find, in an admittedly brief search, is that the current [I think] Somali Ministry of Defence has a coat of arms supported by two spotted cats - heraldic leopards.  Possibly a complete coincidence.
