Summary
  • Colour lithographic poster advertising a set of stamps and associated products issued to trace the design evolution of the iconic Australian emblem, the Rising Sun badge, also known as the General Service badge, worn by Australian Army personnel. The first design, created around 1893, it comprised seven cut-and-thrust swords alternating with six Martini Henri bayonets, radiating from a brass crown, all mounted on a red semi-circular board. Since then its design has gone through seven iterations, five of which are shown in the stamp issue: the first, third, fifth, sixth and seventh. The first, used during the Boer War, was replaced within months, most likely due to the change of name from "Australia" to "Australian Commonwealth Horse". Approved in May 1904, the third design was worn by personnel of Australian Imperial Forces through both World Wars. Following Queen Elizabeth II's coronation (1953), the badge's central motif was altered in the fifth iteration to show the St Edward's Crown, used for her coronation. The sixth design introduced the Federation Star, sitting upon a heraldic wreath. The seventh and most recent design returns the badge to near its third iteration. This change coincided with the 75th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli. On the top right is an image of the current badge and below images of the 5 stamps. The main image of the poster shows Army personnel wearing their slouch hats with the Rising Sun Badge at the left brim.
