KINGS COLONIAL SQUADRON HAT BADGE AUSTRALIA
The Regiment originally consisted of four (4) Squadrons, the badge offered here is more than likely a later badge when the Australasian squadron which contained New Zealanders split into separate units. The original Squadrons were:
- A. Squadron - British Asians, (mostly Indian) whose Squadron badge depicted a large Elephant.
- B. Squadron - British Americans (actually Canadians) whose Squadron badge showed a beaver chewing a branch set against a maple leaf.
- C. Squadron - Australasian, (Australian & New Zealanders) whose Squadron badge was a kangaroo and tree fern set against a rising sun.
- D. Squadron - British African, (South African & Rhodesian) who wore as a Squadron badge, an Ostrich set against a rising sun.
