Default 6th Division patch ?

Gentlemen
I canít find any information about this badge, I got a few years ago with some other bits but I doubt itís original ?
The material seems quite stiff 5,5 x 4,5 cm
Kind regards Chay

The Australian membership will tell you, but I share your doubts. Mike

Completely faked Chay, never existed and we didn't wear that sort of thing.

It is an effeminate depiction of the bounding kangaroo appearing on the vehicle sign of that formation.

Stay right away from these things, guys -- whether printed or woven, they are complete fantasy items. They are depictions of vehicle signs, and were never worn.

Agreed.

These are all fantasy patches.

These divisional formation signs were never made during the war or worn by any member of the 2nd AIF.

As Lettman mentions, they are vehicle signs.
