Badges of Rank in the Australian Defence Force

These badges of rank differ slightly from the ones used in Vietnam. The Coat of Arms that is the badge of rank for the Air Force Warrant Officer, and Army's Warrant Officer Class One, was at that time the Coat of Arms of England (Unicorn and Lion), rather than the present Australian Coat of Arms with the Kangaroo and Emu.  Navy did not institute the Rank of Warrant Officer until shortly after Vietnam.
