  • An early Tank Corps badge, possibly when it was still part of the Heavy Machine Gun Corps. Possibly a pouch badge. 8 cm x 2 cm.

  • The image of the insignia of the Royal Tank Corps is here not because it is Australian (which it obviously is not) but because the Brits invented the tank and therefore every Armoured Corps in the world has to recognise the RTC as it's parent.
