The 6th Battalion (Royal Melbourne Regiment)

The Age (Melbourne), 14th September 1935 page 6.

The button displayed on page 42 of Cossum shows the head and front legs of a kangaroo on a torque, surmounting the numeral 6, as within the badge above.

The Argus (Melbourne), 3rd June 1935 page 9.

The Herald (Melbourne), 19th October 1940 page 5.

Along with the 5th Infantry Battalion, discussed yesterday, this unit is remembered as part of the 5/6th Infantry Battalion, the cap badge which is below. I don’t believe they have an unique button design.
