This winter warmer features the Australian Army's embroidered Rising Sun badge, also known as the General Service Badge or the Australian Army Badge.

It is the official insignia of the Australian Army and is mostly worn on the brim of a slouch hat or, less frequently, on the front of a peaked cap for Army personnel filling certain ceremonial appointments.

The badge is readily identified with the spirit of ANZAC, the legend of the Australian soldier (or digger), and the esprit de corps of the Army itself, due to its association with the landings at Gallipoli in 1915.

Today, new recruits receive the badge with their initial issue of equipment, which happens within their first three days of enlistment.
