I picked this up a few weeks back from a scrapper I know who deals in estates. It is a really neat submarine badge which appears to be foreign-made, metal is light but detailed and there is a pin on the back which extends almost the entire length of the badge. The badge is also hollow.

Definitely foreign made, and the profile of the submarine is also foreign to my eye. Pin/ hinge is suggestive of Australia to the CBI. Almost looks like a British S class.
