Corps of Commissionaire

No backmark.

 The international movement of this Corps dates back to 1859, initially to arrange work for Crimean War veterans.  The first corps was raised in Melbourne in 1877.

The current  Corps of Commissionaires was registered in New South Wales in 1939, then based in Victoria from 1946, and now has members around Australia. It is an ex-service  welfare and and philanthropic organisation. It helps veterans transition to civilian life and runs a Veterans Centre at the Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital, as well as supporting cadet services.
