    Hello Tom,

    The insignia is post 1935 and is for the Durban City Police, previously known as the Durban Borough Police. After this date they became part of the South African Police.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks Ned. I should ask someone in England to ID something from Durban, seems a tad silly doesn't it. :-)
