Hi Warren and Diego;

For colour flashes the AWM has them but listed under each battalion and not
grouped together.

http://www.awm.gov.au/units/unit_11192.asp

That link takes you to the Fifth Battalion Ist AIF page, scroll down for an
example of a shoulder flash. I thihk each battalions will be individually
described.

....Is an AIF Officers jacket.....

Is the jacket worn by other ranks - in this case 23rd Battalion.....

and another  one....

Anyway, have a look at all these or poke around the AWM search engine -
entering "uniform colours" 1914-1918.....

HTH

I'm off now its too late and I gotta erk! work tomorrow.

Neil C is in Brazil?

I still think I am still more south than him... he'd better watch out for
all those 3 toed sloths.... one could be looking at him funny.....


Cheers

Neil :-)  (E)
