A brief look at some Australian Army rank insignia, taken from current work on Volume 3

Hello everyone,

We have been busy working and researching a number of new publications.  Here is one example in a series of planned pictorial extracts, which have been taken from our work on Volume 3, in our series of books which cover metal insignia used by the Australian Army from 1952 to the present day (i.e. from the QEII era).



These items came directly from an official Army source of supply and the images establish that rank for Governors’ General, do not oppose. As you can see the rank insignia come in both gold and silver plated finishes

We hope you enjoy this 1st selected extract, from our work on Volume 3 (as promised).

Yours in research and collecting

The Authors

I am the "C" component of the "CB" numbering system used in our book called: Metal Uniform Embellishments of the Australian Army, Post 1953 ('QEII Series') Vol 1 (Insignia for Corps and Schools etc). Yep... that's a mouthful and the 614 page eBook is an eyeful to match... with images of the front and back of each item, as well as weights and measures for each, so that badge variants can be reliably distinguished by collectors, dealers, historians, re-enactor groups and enthusiasts anywhere in the world.
