CASA CREW BADGE

This set of four badges were introduced in Nov 1998. 

Pilots and Aircraft Mechanics Photographic Crew Members Radar Operator Crew Members Signals Crew Members

 


SENSOR AIRBORNE RADAR OPERATOR  (SARO)

In 1993 the Air Corps sent personnel to Canada to be trained as Airborne Radar Operators.  The badge below was worn by those who completed the course.    At that time the CASA in operation was on lease so the colour scheme (white with red stripes).

The badges are named (except 2nd) to the individual member. 
Not all personnel who completed the course in Canada returned to actual SARO duties therefore there is a lesser number wearing the 1st course badge.
