1947 - 1949

My reason for saying this is the badge is quite clearly of the new 1947 design but has the Corps motto of Cirta Cito in English at the bottom. When the new design of badge came into use the motto was indeed Cirta Cito which was freely translated as TEZ O SAHIH and this is what appears on metal badges of the period inscribed in Devangari script.

Also, I have never actually seen a metal badge with the Star of India above the outstretched hand of "Jimmy" with the motto inscribed in English on the 1947 - 1949 version of this badge.

As mentioned elsewhere on this site the Corps motto changed again in 1949 to TEEVRA CHAUKAS.

If I am incorrect in my supposition, perhaps you would be kind enough to enlighten me.
