The badge instituted in 1922, accompanied a certificate of honour awarded to chiefs and other persons of non-European descent who had rendered loyal and valuable service to the government of the territory. The original award was a neck badge suspended by a ribbon, but from 1954 onwards recipients were given the option of taking the award as a neck or breast badge. They are believed to have fallen into abeyance in the early 1980’s. The British Somaliland Protectorate ceased to exist on 6th July 1964. This badge is dated from 1937 to 1952.
