MILITARIA – RARE 1948-53 42Bn ‘CENTRAL QLD REGT’ SHOULDER TITLE
In 1948, the 42nd Infantry Battalion [The Central Queensland Regiment] was reformed as pert of the Citizens Military Forces [CMF]. In 1953 the name of the Regiment was changed 42nd Infantry Battalion [The Capricornia Regiment]. In 1960, the CMF was re-organised with the 42nd Battalion absorbed into the 2nd Battalion, Royal Queensland Regiment [RQR]. In 1965, the 42nd Battalion was re-raised as a full battalion of the Royal Queensland Regiment and in 2008, 42RQR merged with the 31st Battalion, Royal Queensland Regiment to become the 31st/42nd Battalion, Royal Queensland Regiment.
Infantry regimental shoulder titles worn on Khaki Dress shirt sleeves were manufactured using scarlet cotton background and machine embroidered lettering and border.
This is a ‘CENTRAL QUEENSLAND REGIMENT’ cotton shoulder title worn on Khaki Dress shirts during the brief 6–year period from 1948 to 1953. This is a very scarce shoulder title in good used condition and ready to join a collection of Australian Army badges.
