Aust & NZ Special Forces Insignia



I found this to be an excellent book for its brief histories of all the Special Force units from the WW2 Special Forces such as Independent Companies, Z Special, Parachute Battalion, M Special, Coastwatchers, North Australian Observation Unit through to the Australian SAS Regiment and Long Range Desert Group. It provides a chronological history and explanation of the Special Forces.

Now the majority of the book is a concise visual catalogue of the badges and insigna worn by the various Special Forces.
The following groups are referenced;
 The Independent Companies; New Guinea Air Warning Wireless Company; 1st Australian Parachute battalion; Z special unit; M special unit, The Coastwatchers, 2/1st North Australia Observation Unit and  Royal Australian Navy Special Service Beach Commando.
  Parachute training schools - Australian Army parachutist wings, Commandos, Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV), Special Air Service Regiment (SAS)
 RAR parachute battalion group, 176 Air Despatch Squadron, Regional Force Surveillance Unit; Royal Australian air force parachutists; Royal Australian Navy Clearance Divers.

New Zealand Post-Second World War: 1 Ranger company, Army Parachutist Wings, New Zealand Army Training Team Vietnam; New Zealand SAS, Royal New Zealand air force and Parachute training and support unit,  Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment Parachute Company, Royal New Zealand Navy Operational Diving Team.
