The Malayan Motorists Fighter Fund was a WWII movement with the purpose of sponsoring the RAF with Spitfire fighters. Several funds are known (not just Malayan) and the sponsors succeeded in buying more than 1,500 fighters over a (c.) two year period.
This particular badge was awarded to Malayan AA members who took part in the movement. It came in two sizes: one for car, the other for Motorcycle and light cars.
The Malayan motorists has also helped fighting TB in Malaya, using the same system. ┴ward badges were produced. See attached pic.
