    Default Post your WW2 Australian Insignia.

    G'day all,
    Thought I would start a new thread re WW2 Australian insignia.
    Please post your General Service Badges, Corps and Regimental insignia, Militia insignia, Formation Colour Patches, Rank insignia and the like, the thread is open to all, both cloth and metal and from all arms of the services.

    I'll start with a pair of 1930-42 Victorian 57th Militia Battalion "The Merri Regiment" collar dogs.

    Nice items Dave, I like those militia badges.... I have a few items nothing too rare. my favorites would be the 2/48th patch, the slider hat badge, and of course my Grandfathers insignia from his R.A.A.F tunic and cap.

    great idea for a thread

    regards Paul

    Great idea for a thread Dave!! I am afraid If i start posting my WW2 insignia I will have to use 100 pages

    Use 100 pages then Luke. Go for it mate
    What I hope happens is that we can create a combined reference source for Australian WW2 insignia and the likes. It may become a useful tool for those forum members seeking info on these types of items.
    What got me thinking was your Pattern 37 webbing thread idea Luke. Maybe another thread on Aussie WW2 Uniforms and Headdress, any other idea's fella's ?

    Post away
