More Current Issue Australian Army Rank Insignia (Field Marshall)

Hello All,

Here is yet another set of images, taken from our current work on Volume 3.  The 3rd volume in the series, covers metal rank and trade insignia used by the Australian Army, from 1953 to the present day. This time, we have prepared an advanced extract from the section which documents the rank of Field Marshall (shown here on a set of polyester shoulder boards). For those of you who are not aware of the identity of the only individual who holds the rank of Field Marshall in the Australian Army… it’s Prince Charles.

Field Marshall rank on poly boards 300DPI

As you can see, unlike the shoulder boards for the ranks of Governor General and State Governor, these items come in opposed pairs only.  It does take an eye for detail to see how these items oppose 🙂

Happy research and collecting!

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.
