Default 10th Light Horse - Officer's bullion beret badge

10th Light Horse - Officer's bullion beret badge - circa 1970s/1980s.

I was told be an ex XLH officer that only 100 were made.

Enjoy!

Mick

I am fortunate enough to have one of these bullion badges, and now know why I have not been able to pick up another one in spite of keeping a look out for years. Thanks for the info Mick.

Here's a picture of this unofficial badge being worn.

Seems it was also worn by Other Ranks and not just by officers.

Hi Mick,
I hope you will not mind if I nick that picture of yours as it is better than the one I use as my avatar.

Best wishes,

John
