Dear Forum,

Could you please help me ID this unit patch? The slouch hat is dated 1945.

Kindest Regards

I agree with Mick.

From page 156 in DISTINGUISHING COLOUR PATCHES OF THE AUSTRALIAN MILITARY FORCES 1915 - 1951 by Keith Glyde:

"1254. 2/3rd Aust. Casualty Clearing Station, 1940-1945: Auth. Colour patch chart promulgated with AHQ(DOS) Memo No. 70030, 21.10.1940."
