Details

A distinctive device for personnel who had served at Gallipoli was proposed by the Military Board on 6 November 1917. AIF Order No.937 established eligibility for wear:

Members of the Australian Imperial Force who served on Gallipoli will be entitled to wear over their unit colour patches... the letter 'A', as an indication that the wearer had taken part in the Gallipoli campaign.

Initially supplied at public expense the letter 'A' was approved in November 1917 as one inch high. In December however, it was modified to be three-quarters of an inch high and of brass. In practice examples range from an half inch to one inch and appear in a variety of materials other than brass, including silk thread and hand woven brass wire.

The Gallipoli Service Emblem was worn in the centre of the colour patch on each sleeve.

These reproductions have been copied from an original example. They are a high quality, die struck, brass badge. They are sold in pairs.
