Zambia Army Signal Corps Shoulder Beret Badge
[Colin Hodgkins collection ZAM 0008]
This is an example of the Zambia Army Signal Corps beret badge.
The badge is a bi-metal 'Jimmy' on a white over blue diamond on an orange backing felt.
The Zambia Army Signals Corps evolved from the pre-independence Northern Rhodesia Signals Squadron, which in turn had been formed from the former Rhodesia and Nyasaland Corps of Signals. The latter was disbanded on the termination of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland in 1963 (Cliff Lord & Graham Watson ‘The Royal Corps of Signals Unit Histories of the Corps 1920-2001 and its antecedents’).
