Yes, I know nothing of the unit but I like the badge, it's understated for a bullion.

Again, I like the badge (I have a soft spot for Geordie & the dragon badges).
I have a collar badge, similar to the central design.

Lovely badge and differs from UK Rifle Regiments Colour Segeants badges being the regular Infantry pattern but on grey/khaki.

This is what it would look like here, apart from backing colour of course (see photo)

regards

bc,

Colour Sergeant badges are my greatest passion, so many different colour/size/shape combo's.

thanks for showing this one, it would have puzzled me for sure without the Oz attribution.

regards

Colour Sergeants badges are very attractive, I've always thought it a pity the crossed flags etc design didn't remain the norm.
I have only the one Colour Sergeants bullion badge, I think - Royal Marines Kings Crown (albeit X 3).

Leigh, you might find that your "collar badge" was worn as a hat badge and HP as well. I saw one in an estate lot on a white NSW helmet years ago, also saw the large St Geo (as in the centre of the HP) worn on the COLLAR of an officer tunic.
We have had a thread or two on these before, maybe someone can find it.
I think the 'collar badge' was an existing British design bought off the shelf by the NSW regiment 1901-03. The scanned badge with "L V Asylum Festival" has the date 1869.

BC's badge is 1903-12, and Tinto's is 1901-03. See scan for the pre 1901 lead-filled variant.
I have more scans of the smaller St Geo badges on my other computer and will post them tomorrow in answer to the other thread.
