Here are photographs of the battalions’ emblems/crests/badges to which veterans on the Strathroy cenotaph were attached, to the best of our knowledge, at the time of their death or upon leaving the armed services.

All pole ‘banners’ have the emblem on a black, powder-coated background to allow the colours of the graphics to be prominent.
