    Oz is correct, The S within a wreath is an Australian WW2 trade badge for a "Battery Surveyor" Royal Australian Artillery. I am pretty sure I posted one way back in the thread.

    Cheers mate ~

    So it is in fact a "Battery Surveyor's" badge ~

    Take that as read.. ~

    Was it worn on a Beret or on the sleeve ?

    IS it a rare item ?

    Almost always worn on the right sleeve above your NCO rank.

    Although a different badge, here is an example of what I mean.

    No not a particularly rare badge, but not as common as the 1000's of marksman badges you see on ebay every week!
