New Finds

5th Infantry Battalion (Victorian Scottish Regiment)

Backmark: Stokes & Sons Melb. Pre 1963.



Staff Officers

Stokes Melb.

A Staff Officer assists a commander or in headquarters managing correspondence, such as preparing presentations and briefs, calendar management, travel bookings, administrative tasks and chasing returns. Whilst there are stoaff officers in all branches of defence, I think this is an army button.
