Army Remembrance Pin
The Army Remembrance Pin acknowledges the service of men and women who have died while in Army.
The Army Remembrance Pin, a gift from the Chief of Army, is a symbol for the families of all Army members who have died while in service, both domestically and on operations, since 3 September 1945. The pin also demonstrates Army’s deep appreciation of the members’ and their families’ contributions to the Australian Army.
