Campaign Badge – Afghanistan
Each campaign badge measures 2cm diameter. On the back the history of the campaign is outlined.
‘After the shielding of terrorists by the Taliban, Australia joined the international effort to destroy the Al-Qaeda network and break control of the oppressive Afghani regime. The country remains a frontline battle zone and focus of international attention. Despite the many advances in technology, some things never change. While wearing the latest in combat equipment and carrying the latest weaponry, the Aussie troops in Afghanistan still work closely with war dogs, just as they have since WWI. The dogs serve and sacrifice just as the Diggers do and their bond is always close.’
