The front and rear of a pair of ‘C’ Squadron (Australian) collar badges are shown in Figure 224 and 225. This pair of collar badges are die-struck in yellow-brass. The right-hand collar badge has had their genuine north-south loops removed and replaced with east-west positioned loops. Examination of another pair of collar badges has determined that these additional collar badges also have north-south loops. Like the other Squadron collar badges, the ‘C’ Squadron (Australian) collar badges are a matching pair. In the pair shown, the kangaroo on the left-hand collar badge has a straight tail as should the right-hand collar badge which has a tail which has been accidentally bent.
The ‘C’ Squadron (Australian) collar badges are the most difficult to come by.Figures 224 and 225: A pair of ‘C’ Squadron (Australian) collar badges (In the style of KK 1375) in gilding metal (From a Sydney collector).
Unlike bronzed OSD versions of the 'A' Squadron (British Asian), 'B' Squadron (British American) and 'E' Squadron (New Zealand) collar badges, a bronzed OSD version of the 'C' Squadron (Australian) collar badges has not been noted.
