hi peter the pick was a significant part of the Rhodesian national coat of arms in recognition of the importance of the mining industry to the rhodesian economy I am not sure why it appears on the army badge but is fairly common on Rhodesian items I have attached a pic of the old Rhodesian coat of arms
