No worries - it's certainly a very nice badge and quite hard to find.

Default Australian Signallers Badge White Metal

Dear BC

Would dearly love to see your white metal version. My guru Cliff Lord has never mentioned a white metal version.

He has told me of a white metal version of the Royal Australian Signals Badge without the scroll underneath circa 1930's again I have never seen one.

He has also told me of a Red Enamaalled Australian Corps of Signals badge like the Blue and Red one I have on my little site www.signalsbadges.co.uk but I have never seen one of these either.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks

Chris

Default white metal aussie sigs hat badge

Hi Chris
As promised here is the white metal hat badge. The metal has turned a little tarnished/discoloured, but it is what it is. I often wonder though that some of the older badges were nikel plated before being gilt plated. I have heard this could account for the odd white metal badges, when they were in fact never finished off? I don't believe though the sigs badge came gilt plated?
Who knows

Default silver australlian corps of signals cap badge

Dear BC

Many thanks for the site of the White metal cap badge. I have only recently got a brass version of and a pair of collars that i have just put on the site. Have a look. www.signalsbadges.co.uk

Have you ever heard of a Red Enamal version of the 1933 Australian Corps of Signals badge. As you can see I have the Blue enamell and Cliff Lord tells me there is such a thing as Red (Or even Orangie/Red) Would love to know

Many thanks for the photo

Cheers

hi chris
i am glad you like the pic. i bought the badge in a big group of mixed commonwealth badges several years ago. it came with a wireless section officers enamel badge and 2 types of enameled crossed flags. blue and white and red and white. i think the pics of the badges are on this site somewhere.
the orriginal owner was an nco with the sigs at galipolli and was commisioned in france a little later. he ended up serving into the early 20s.
as for the red enamel hat badge, i have heard but have never seen an example
