Comments: RAAF – Women’s Royal Australian Air Force Anodised Hat Badge – Post 1960. Complete with two pins.

The Women’s Royal Australian Air Force (WRAAF) was formed in 1950, after the success of women serving in the Air Forces had been demonstrated by the Women’s Auxiliary Australian Air Force (WAAAF). The first recruits began training on 30 January 1951. In 1972, the service achieved a pay scale equal to the male service. In 1977, the WRAAF was absorbed into the RAAF.

Now a scarce badge.
