    Heres mine Rene,
    The WW1 medal is much better design and quality than the WW2 version, in my opinion.
    Notice the Sword on the WW2 Medal is blocking the Japanese invasion from the north.(i just noticed that)
    Nice one mate, as you probably know these were given to school kids to celebrate the end of the war. I also have the Boer war version somewhere as well.

    I'd love to see the (Boere Oorlog as my Wife calls it) Boer war version, that I may have to find for myself!

    How much is too much? LOL Yeah mate massive problems posting ...what little internet I am able to get is going at a snail's pace.

    That looks like a good little RAAF haul though! The crowns were worn by flight sergeants or could also be for a Staff Sergeant If worn by the army as you can see they have the backing plates so they can be worn on the sleeve opposed to being worn on the shoulder for officers rank, and the other badge from memory is either a RAF or RAAF signaller or signals mechanic sleeve badge.

    Moth nipped to buggery but still a good T patch.
    I feel Morshead had the right idea with the ninth when he switched to the T design. At least there was a higher degree of conformity with the units formation patches in this Division as opposed to the miss matched colour patches of the other 3 2nd AIF Divisions.

    Later gents
