Its a shame not more is known or recorded of the cadet badges, they are an intriguing subject.

The Hale School CU one you have also came in a enamelled version in the 1970s, light blue and dark blue.

Default Australain Cadet badges

Nice selection. As Keith identified, there is an absence of reference material on the Australian cadets.Unfortunately the photos aren't the most detailed to allow future reference. Any chance of more photos of individual badges, perhaps in an album please?

Stephen.

Nice collection there BC.

I have attached a couple of pics of some of my cadet badges, again only a small collection compared to some I have seen.

I thought I perhaps ought to practice what I preach, so I've loaded an album with my titles.

I'll try to get the headdress and collar badges done one day, but it won't be soon as I'm away all next week.
