Default Para Instructor Brevet

Hi All
I believe this is Australian. Can anyone tell me anything about it, dates of use etc please? There is a maker name which looks like KG Luke and then what appears to be 'STG SIL' for sterling silver. It has a little damage on the back (I think it may have been stood on) so would there be any interest or value in it? It is surplus to my collecting needs so I may be moving it on.
Thanks in advance. Cheers,

It is a Parachute Jump Instructor brevet in sterling silver for wear on Summer Dress, with brooch fitting dating it from the 1960's to the 1980's.
KG Luke Group Industries Ltd from Melbourne changed its name to Luke Limited on 20 December 1976. Luke Limited was taken over by National Consolidated Limited on 19 October 1983.

Rgds, Thomas
