  • ID Unit Patch on Australian Slouch Hat

    Dear Forum,

    Could you please help me ID this unit patch? The slouch hat is dated 1945.

    Kindest Regards

      I agree with Mick.

      From page 156 in DISTINGUISHING COLOUR PATCHES OF THE AUSTRALIAN MILITARY FORCES 1915 - 1951 by Keith Glyde:

      "1254. 2/3rd Aust. Casualty Clearing Station, 1940-1945: Auth. Colour patch chart promulgated with AHQ(DOS) Memo No. 70030, 21.10.1940."
      Wanted:

      --WW II crystal clear Home Front studio portraits. Particularly interested in NFS and Home Guard portraits. Bonus paid for a NFS studio portrait with a numbered helmet being worn.

      --WW II crystal clear Australian, British, Canadian and New Zealand patched studio portraits.

        I also have been searching for this one, is this in the book too?

        Kindest Regards
