Maker’s Name: N/A

Comments: Australian Army Veterinary Corps – Brass Opposing Collar Badge Pair. Scarce 1930s version. Both complete with two lugs. One has N/S lugs and the other E/W.
While the Veterinary Corps reached its peak during the Great War, its role did not end when the guns fell silent in 1918. Instead, the Corps continued to support military activities across Australia until horsepower finally gave way to mechanisation in World War II. The Corps success in enabling the 1st Australian Imperial Force to fight in two theatres, each with its own peculiar veterinary problems,is an achievement worth recording.
