The Australian Squadron headdress and collar badges depict a kangaroo on a scroll inscribed Australia. In brass (KK 1375).
In 1903, upon formation of the ‘E’ Squadron (New Zealand), ‘C’ Squadron (Australasian) was left with an entirely Australian make-up. It was re-named the ‘C’ Squadron (Australian).
The ‘C’ Squadron (Australian) headdress badge is shown being worn in Figure 256.
