Default Australian

Hello
Both the tank shape/design and the lug type match this Australian badge that I have in my collection. Yours doesn't have a rising sun though. I think this design was short lived in early 1930s.
Let me know if you would like to sell yours –*I collect everything with WWI British tanks on it

No additional information. Sorry. I referred to my badge (with rising sun and motto) as the 30's design.
