Source: badges of the British Colonies from Flags of Maritime Nations 1914 [usn14] which also appears on Znamierowski 1999 [zna99].

1906 might just be correct. The first reference to the badge that I have seen is a c.1909 amendment to the Admiralty Flag Book of 1907. It was replaced in 1947 when arms were granted.

This ensign is typical of those British red ensigns that had no official warrant but were produced and used nevertheless.
