Default Kings crown Australian military forces rising sun

Never seen one of these before in the hand and searching here is difficult to find this type to compare against. I hope it is correct.

Thanks Mick, but I knew the date, it is if it is good or not that I am wondering. I am familiar with the earlier WWI & WWII patterns and own a few examples, but not this type or the later rising suns. I have a scanned 2 volumes of Cossum's on my laptop so can do the id'ing its the authenticity I not sure of in this case.
