As posted above, I'm looking for clarification on these badges.top is obviously British, but for what/whom?

bottom looks British-made, but for what unit/armed force?

any help gratefully received!

At first thought, It could be a Sgt Majors wrist band insignia ,possibly Engineers, but I, dont think I,ve seen one like it before. The other two look like foreign insignias possibly middle eastern, the stars and crescent moon, they are definately puzzling

Maybe just a locally produced brigade or divisional insignia,for some niggling reason I keep thinking Persian.No idea why though !.Although the colours would suggest Indian or Pakistan,dunno O.o.

That's a good match, apart from the pedantic aspect that turned around, the star cluster is slightly awry.however, you never know if foreign quality control dictates the accuracy of military emblems..!!

We were,nt far out seeing it could be Asian,,, but I think that actually makes sense, British troops in Singapore could well have picked these up, I,d be inclined to think this was case solved.

@Bil4338 on further checking I found that the Police insignia is that way around so it might be an early Police patch. Hope this helps narrow it down a bit.

Sorry to you all I missed this,

But all your answers seem to agree. I will try and find out and let you know.

Mind you the others who answered you are very knowlegdable with insignia.

Best to you all...Desert Rat
