INDIAN SIGNAL CORPS
OFFICER’S PATTERN – BRONZE
1934 – 1947
Although the Indian Signal Corps was raised on the 15th February 1911 the Corps did not have its own cap badge or buttons at that time. It was not until 1928 that the Corps was permitted to wear Royal Corps of Signals insignia.
In 1934 the Indian Signal Corps was formerly permitted a crest of their own. Many of these early badges were indeed made by local craftsmen, one of which is depicted above on the right hand side. This badge in reality is no more than a brass badge with a coating of bronze paint, the brass can quite clearly be seen showing through and a white metal "Jimmy".
Like Officers of the Royal Corps of Signals, Officers of the Indian Signal Corps were permitted to wear a Bronze cap badge on their Service Dress caps as the illustration above shows. The badge to the left is a genuine die struck badge.
