Hi bc,

Top left RAA appear to be Stokes and Sons, could be any period 1904-1912, and then 1933-1942. Stocks continued to be issued and worn from at least 1928 although it was in breach of standing orders for dress.

Top right RAA are Royal Artillery Association uniformed staff and thus not Australian.

Bottom left AFA are anytime 1903 until 1922 although probably not issued until at least 1906.

Centre right RAA is Arendsen and therefore immediately pre World War Two until 1942.

Bottom right RAGA is 1913 until 1917, and 1919-1922. Worn in oxidised copper 1917-1919, possibly continued to be issued while stocks lasted between 1922-27 although this was in breach of standing orders for dress.

Cheers, Keith

The larger AE was 1903-12, the smaller one later but can't specify the date. RAE 1930s. ENGRS was WW1 AIF as far as I am aware.
The large AMC was NSW 1898 replacing the former MSC, possibly worn in other states as well until superseded by RAMC after 1903. The others were 1930s.

Please amend my previous post: AMC superseded by AAMC in 1903 NOT RAMC
