5th Gurkha Rifles silvered badge, Indian Army post Independence


The 38 x 32 mm silvered badge probably dates from the 1950s when the old British 5th Royal Gurkha Rifles became the 5th Gurkha Rifles Frontier Force of the new Indian Army. The two spike fixings could indicate that it was used on a pouch or belt but we have been told that this could have been worn on a hat. It has some wear from polishing. jun4/3
