I think there's a case for expanding the Indian section a little. I'd suggest by time periods, e.g.
pre-1903
1903-1922
1922-1947
post 1947

As to the issue of number of posts, it's possible...

Mystery 27 badge?

During TV news coverage of Anzac Day in Adelaide, a very brief close-up of what looked like a cadet showed a badge on the front of the slouch hat which I'm sure had '27' on it, but of a type I'd...

Britains, eh? Oh well, I only missed them by 29 years. Might have to do some trawling through 2nd hand sources.

Hi Mick,
Just a correction: it was the 4th ALH who were divided between theatres. The 13 ALH was all on the Western Front.

Thank you for your comprehensive response -- very informative. And yes, it makes you wonder if those 45th badges are actually products of the 1965 project rather than WW2.

So the question still...

I was going by Chris's dates of 1975-78. Given the introduction of the DPM jacket around 1978, this would seem the latest year in which the Denison smock with Dakota signs would have been worn.

Thanks, Chris. That would seem to put a firm set of dates on when the outfit would have been last worn.

Can anyone identify this patch, please? It came with a bunch of unrelated French badges, but I don't know what it is.

There's a printed version of the sign in Jon Mills' books, item 2676 (vol.1). However, the black diablo looks slightly different.
