Default Australian Signal Corps

I need some help to identify these Signal Shoulder Titles. The "SIG TR" are supposedly Australian Light Horse Sig Troop 1918, the other titles "SIGNAL" are purported to be Canadian, but could they be Australian?

There are two different strikings of the SIGTR title. Like the companion SIGCO title, definitely WW1 Australian and presumably Light Horse. The SIGNAL title looks Australian to me but I can't prove it with documentation. I thought that the one sold recently on Ebay was wrongly listed as Canadian but you would have to ask a Canadian collector.

Thanks Kingsley,
To be fair the lettering is slightly different and just about a mm bigger.
The "Gs" are not the same, but it sure looks a lot like the SIG TR one.

The one sold as Canadian recently, is the brass one in my photos.

Regards, Phil.
