These badges were awarded by the Government to those who:
* Volunteered to join the overseas service but who were denied enlistment for various reasons and who then wore the badges on their civilian clothing to avoid receiving ridicule and even white feathers from the general populace.
* Actually served at home or overseas during these conflicts, and to;
* Female relatives of those who had served, or were serving, or had lost their life as a result of that service.
For those who hold badges for which no details are known, reference is also made to the method of obtaining information on the recipient of the badge.
A great resource for the collectors of Australian badges.
