Rob, you replied to my question some time ago about the 'Wallaby fur pugaree' worn by Queensland Troops in South Africa. Can you indicate what type of hat badge they had and where I can view a picture of one. One of our troop members has made up a hat (being an ex-Queenslander) and will be looking for a hat badge to suit (probably a repro badge)
Thanks GT

There are two confirmed badges used by QIB during the Boer War.
The Queensland General Service Badge, (a fine quality repro is available, try Victoria Barracks Historical SOciety (Brisbane) Inc, CHurch St Fortitude Valley QLD)
and the QIB SHoulder Title, a repro for which will be available in the not too distant future.
QMI wore the QMI hat badge or the QLD Gen service badge with a cotton 4 pleat pugaree. THe colour of the hat is natural grey rabbit fur, not khaki!!!

Dear Rob,
I sincerely hope that ANY repro,bogus,fake or other form of "nature faking" is marked as such on the items.

All the reproductions being made are marked by this manufacturer with their name and the year of manufacture, because some of them are as good as the originals (the 1912 collar dogs made for one uniform for the Cobb & Co display were made off an original die, but with pins rather than loops and marked appropriately)
