Magnet: Australian Army Rising Sun badge


Proudly worn by soldiers of the 1st and 2nd Australian Imperial Force in both World Wars, the 'Rising Sun' badge has become an integral part of the digger tradition. The distinctive shape of the badge, worn on the upturned side of a slouch hat, is commonly identified with the spirit of Anzac.

The Rising Sun has evolved over time and since 1991 Australian Army soldiers have worn the seventh pattern Rising Sun.

The Rising Sun Badge was originally called the General Service Badge, but it is now officially labelled the Australian Army Badge. It will, however, always be referred to as the Rising Sun Badge.

This smart brass colourer magnet is both useful and decorative. It would make a perfect gift for service personnel or their families.

Measures H3.5 x W5 cm
