Military Badges: part 1

Uniform buttons and badges were/are often made by the same manufacturers. There is a lot of crossover in terms of history, manufacturer and collectibility. For example, J. K. Cossum, as well as publishing the book ‘Buttons of the Defence Forces in Australia’, also wrote several books about Australian Army badges and cloth insiginia.

Here are some interesting historical images from Pix magazine, 12th January 1952 p2.

From the Army Magazine, 1st March 1991 pages 30 & 31.
