    Numbered Australian WW2 badges - can they be researched?


    Recommended Posts

    I bought a few WW2 Australian badges, all numbered on the rear. Are there any online records where I might be able to find the recipient using these numbers please.

    Regards, 

    Duncan.

    Hi Duncan,

    looks like there are registers with the names for numbered badges, maybe they are the badges you have…

    Hi, just an update, the rolls and legders are not searchable online, so you have to visit the records office in Australia to manually search.

    Thanks for the help, Duncan.
