Comments: Australian Army – Aide-de-Camp (ADC) ERII Epaulette Badge – Silver coloured version.
Worn by officer ADCs on epaulettes. Australian Defence Force officers serve as aides-de-camp to specific senior appointments, such as the Queen, Governor-General, state governors, Defence Force Chiefs and other specified Army, Navy and Air Force command appointments. Honorary aides-de-camp to the Governor-General or state governors are entitled to the post-nominal ADC during their appointment. Officers of and above the ranks of Rear Admiral, Major General and Air Vice Marshal in specifically designated command appointments are entitled to an aide de camp with the Army rank of Captain (or equivalent). Within the Navy, an aide-de-camp is called a “Flag Lieutenant” (as senior Naval Officers are “Flag Officers”).
Now a scarce and highly desirable badge.
