Collar Badges - Corps of Engineers 

This badge was introduced in 1924 and has remained the same basic design since.  The early badge had the word "Innealtoiri" (Engineers) on the collar of the badge.  Officers wore silver and enlisted ranks wore brass up to 1942 when both ranks wore bronze.   In 1953 the wording changed to "An Cor Innealtoiri" and it can be found in brass, bronze and staybrite.  A 1942 series cloth officers badge was designed but not worn.

The badge comprises a theodolite and a Torc (Gaelic collar).
