Collar Badges  -  Artillery Corps 

The Artillery Corps collar badge has remained the same  design since its introduction in 1924.  The first type is referred to as the "long scroll artillery badge".  As was the practice the badge was produced in two metals Silver for Officers and Brass for Enlisted ranks.  The long scroll was worn up to 1942 when it was replaced by the smaller badge.  As you can see the small badge has been  produced in a number of metals.  The cloth badge which would fall into the 1942 officers series was not worn.  The brass long scroll shown below has had the ends of the scroll clipped for some reason.
