INDIAN SIGNAL CORPS.
BI – METAL.
1947 – 1949
As can quite clearly be seen this is a completely one piece cap badge of the Indian Signal Corps made of Bi - Metal and is just another version of the 1947 design. The five pointed star known as the ' Star of India' being attached to the outstretched right arm of Mercury. Some Indian Signal Corps badges were actually made with a pin type connection to be worn on the 'Pagri' or turban.
The original motto of the Indian Signal Corps from 1934 was CERTA CITO and was freely translated as TEZ O SAHIH . In 1949 the motto was changed to TEEVRA CHAUKAS. It is transcribed on the scroll in Devnagiri script, meaning Swift and Sure/Secure.
As I have stated earlier, the Indian Signal Corps became the Indian Corps of Signals in January 1950.
