The ornaments for the hat were:
Staff- Red and white cock plumes.
Light Horse (Tasmania)- Emu feathers and regimental badge.
Infantry- Black rosette and regimental badge or number.

1st of July 1903, The Tasmanian Rangers adopted new hat and collar badges, depicting the Tasmanian tiger moulded in whitemetal with the title "Tasmanian Rangers" underneath.
