For more information concerning the badges of rank and appointment used by the Australian Imperial Force, as well as their position on the jacket, please see our blog.

In the Australian Imperial Force, badges of rank, during both the First and Second World Wars, were worn on the right arm only.

These badges are made of wool thread embroidered onto a khaki wool backing. Rank badges are sold individually, not in pairs.
