    Here is a Australian WW1 badge recently acquired,
    Getting quite hard to find.

    Called the " too bloody late badge "

    This badge
    (sometimes referred to as the 'too bloody late' badge)
    was issued to those AIF recruits who, at the time of the Armistice, in November 1918, were training in Australia, or who had enlisted but had not yet been called into camp for training. It was also issued to serving members of the Royal Australian Garrison Artillery who had volunteered, but not embarked, for service in the AIF Siege Artillery Brigade.

    Here we have a Australian Army Infantry Combat Badge Or ICB ,

    This one was given to me by a Vietnam veteran friend a few years ago ,

    Description of Badge:

    The badge, finished in bronze, is in the form of a (vertically mounted Australian Army SLR) bayonet surrounded by (an oval shaped) laurel wreath. It is approximately 28 mm wide and fixed to the uniform by means of pins and clutch grips.
    Clasp or Emblem Worn (if Awarded)


    Conditions of Award:

    Except as provided in the following, the Infantry Combat Badge may only be awarded to a serving member of the Australian Army who has given, either continuous or aggregate, 90 days satisfactory service as an infantryman in operations.
    Service as an infantryman means service as a member of the Royal Australian Infantry Corps in an infantry posting in an Australian Infantry Battalion, Independent Rifle Company, Commando Company, Special Air Service Regiment, or other such Australian unit as may be designated by the Chief of General Staff.
    Operations is defined as service in a war or campaign in respect of which a campaign star or medal is awarded.
    Special circumstances exist where members of other Corps may be awarded the badge. These are dealt with on a case by case basis by an Infantry Combat Badge Committee. These "special circumstances" are not dealt with here in these notes.

    Wearing of the Badge:

    The Infantry Combat Badge is worn on the left breast, centrally placed one (1) cm immediately above the medal ribbons or medals. The Badge is worn with the bayonet pointing upwards and is not to be polished.

    I have an ex-army mine detector, that I picked up at a flea market in Melbourne years ago. Came with all the bits and pieces and a couple of manuals. We tried it looking for gold around the hills north of Melbourne, but only found a shipload of old nails and a large rifle slug that was buried about a foot in the ground. We also found quite a few coins on the beach with it. Actually I just put it up for sale on Gumtree yesterday for $275.00

    Not sure if its the right place but we have in our family 2 brass canon shells from WW1 1915, whats special about these shells is that they are engraved with Egyptian hieroglyphics and have the aussie coat of arms on them with the date 1915 engraved on them.
    Not sure of the history or how we came to have them but they are a work of art, i will post some pics when i get a chance.

    Look forward to it , what you have is called 'trenchart' , quite a few different designs and forms were sold to soldiers overseas and sold in shops post war , sometimes soldiers made it themselves .

    Yes, i did a search and found what they are called but these shells are far more ornate than any i saw online.
