The puggaree has been worn on the Austalian slouch hat since it was adopted in 1903, except during the First and Second World Wars when a plain khaki wool band was adopted. Different colours, as well as coloured folds in the puggaree were used for many years to differentiate regiments, however, this was abandoned shortly after the Second World War. While clothing regulations state the puggaree was to have seven folds, puggarees with less than this were made and issued. The puggarees used by colonial military forces prior to Federation varied in the number of their folds.
