Several British colonies copied the ARP badge and added a scroll beneath to denote the location. This ARP badge was issued in the Straits Settlements, a number of provinces locations on the Malay peninsular (known these days as Singapore and Malaysia). I cannot make out the silver marks but assume it was a locally manufactured badge.
Similar badges with scrolls are known to exist for Hong Kong, Kenya and Malta. Some forgeries of these badges have been seen but I believe this one shown to be genuine.
