5th Australian Infantry Regiment (5AIR) Officer's hat badge - 1900 to 12
The 5th Battalions have had a long and distinguished career in the Australian Army dating back to its formation in 1885 in the city of Bendigo, as part of Victoria's colonial military forces. After Federation in 1901 the military forces were reorganised and the 5th Infantry Regiment was established in Melbourne. Following the outbreak of war in August 1914, the 5th Battalion was raised in Melbourne as part of the First Australian Imperial Force.
