Details

The Australian general service hat and collar badge were introduced in 1904. Designed by Gaunt of London, who redesigned the earlier Australian Commonwealth Horse badge, these badges were worn by Australian military corps and regiments who did not have a distinctive badge. They were worn by the majority of units (the Australian Siege Artillery wore the Artillery Corps badge during the First World War) of the Australian Imperial Force during both the First and Second World Wars. During war the badges were blackened (oxidised) to reduce shine. These badges were replaced in 1948, the new badge dropping the word 'commonwealth' from the scroll.
