    Hi,

    I don't know if it's Aussie (it does not appear to be in Clive Johnson's book on Australian awards) but if it is from Australia, the swan should narrow it down to a West Australian badge.

    Cheers, Tim

      I don't think it's military but its related to Western Australia.

        G'day Chay

        A quick Google search on the motto shows that it is used by the WA government, so Id say its a WA local government badge rather than a military badge.

        Maybe if you sent the photo to John Burridge he may be able to answer your question.

        Regards

        Phil.

            West Australian police but they have been heavily copied.
            Not sure about yours but I donít like the look of the back.
            I think they were maker marked also??

                It is a WA Police cap badge. It may have been worn by Senior Officers. However, as previously said, they have been copied to death. I'm fairly sure that the originals were hallmarked on the back.
