Badge, Arm, Volunteer AIF, Medically Unfit.

For members of the Australian Military Forces who had volunteered for the Australian Imperial Force but had been rejected as medically unfit. Wearing of the badge was optional.

Obsolescent in Priced Vocabulary of Clothing and Necessaries 1921-22 (shown as an article not of current manufacture, stocks of which would not be replaced).
