Looking Forward, Looking Back: Customs and Traditions of the Australian Army

by: Christopher Jobson
published by: Big Sky Publishing


This book explores the customs and traditions of the Australian Army as they have evolved since its inception. Some belong to the service as a whole, others to particular corps, regiments or ranks. Many owe their origins to the Australian Army's early days as a colonial force of the British Empire, or to the long-held traditions of the British Army.

The book explains the origins of the Army's badges of rank, its various items of dress, its ceremonial traditions and its corps and regimental badges.

Covering both current and past traditions, the book will ensure that our changing military heritage is not lost over time.

RRP: $34.99
