  • ASC title

    I am wondering if this title could be for Australian Staff Corps. It has flat triangular-shaped loops at back

    Appreciate confirmation as to i.d.

    I believe it is Australian but stands for "Army Service Corps" and was worn above a curved "Australia" title.

      Thanks for that, Milmed. So would it predate 'Australian Army Service Corps'?

        Cant help you out there... maybe one of the Aussie collectors would be able to assist. I do believe that these were worn during WWI

          Yes, and I have since Googled and found that this title was used prior to 1915. Thanks for your assistance.

            We had a thread about these WW1 titles before. They were worn above the AUSTRALIA title by the AIF until they were replaced in 1916 by colour patches. There were a lot of different patterns, many of which are quite rare. Others include AMC,FA, LH, INF, LHFA, AFC, ENGRS, NBT, AVC, many others.
