EHPHEMERA - Returned from Active Service Badge (replica only)

The Department of Defence originally awarded the Returned from Active Service Badge (RASB) to members of Australia’s military forces who had served overseas during the First World War. On becoming civilians again, former personnel were entitled to wear the Badge publicly as tangible evidence of their participation in the War. Today, the RASB continues to recognise the military service and sacrifice of those who wear it while dressed in civilian attire.
