Comments: Tally Band – Royal Australian Navy Emergency Reserve – circa 1960s.
In 1964 a new branch of the Reserves was established known as the Royal Australian Naval Emergency Reserve (RANER). It consisted of ex-RAN and trained RANR personnel who were prepared to make themselves available for immediate call-out in a situation of defence emergency short of war. In 1974 entry and enlistment in the RANER was suspended and the last sailor completed his engagement in 1979.
Now a scarce and highly desirable tally.
