Details

This badge was worn by forward observers of the artillery. Forward observers were responsible for directing the fire of the battery or batteries from a forward position. This involved observing shell bursts, and adjusting fire by observation, or by computation methods. The observer worked closely with commanders of the supported unit to determine appropriate targets, and to train personnel in the procedures of artillery operation. They were responsible for the organisation of observation posts and also communications to these posts.
