New Find

NSW Corps of Commissionaires

This example has the backmark of  A. J. Parkes, Brisbane, unlike Carol’s unmarked version.

The button has the 2 “air holes” on the back, dating from approx 1953 onwards.

Although the Corps of Commissionaires (N.S.W.) was wound up in 1974, a Federal Association still exists. http://www.thecorps.com.au/
