I'm not sure it's a UK postcard - it seems unlikely - so difficult to date. looking at the photo I would say 1930's-1940's.

I bow to your superior knowledge on Military Dress Shaun, but, in my opinion, the studio backdrop doesn't fit with the 30s/40s style of photography.

I have corrected the perspective and given it a clean.

Perhaps they were a bit behind the times in Palestine

Thank you for doing the corrections and clean.
I have attached a confirmed photo of my grandfather during WW2 and although there are some similarities i am not sure if it is him.

In a few weeks i can show it to my father as he was sent a lot of photos by his father during the second world war and would be able to say if it is him.

If not then we probably will never find out as we didn't have any family in Palestine or any Jewish connections

I still think the badge is Royal Signals not Palestine Police but that's just my opinion and I would not have been able to come to that conclusion without everyone's help.
