WW2 Chindit/Malayan Police Songkok

A nice songkok, a traditional Malayan hat. On one side an original cloth Chindit badge sewn on and the other a Malayan police badge. I'm sure this hat could tell a few stories. The Chindit patch shows some signs of wear. but overall the item is in good condition. Possibly belonged to a veteran of both Chindit and police. A nice rare piece.

The Chindits, known officially as the Long Range Penetration Groups, were special-operations units of the British and Indian armies which saw action in 1943–1944 during the Burma Campaign of World War 2.
