Collar Badges - Ordnance Corps 

The Ordnance Corps badge introduced in 1924 has remained the same basic design since..  The inscription on the scroll of the 1924 version is "Serbhis Ordanais an Airm" (Army Ordnance Service).  The next change was in 1935 with the introduction of the long badge which was worn until 1955.  The 1955 design was smaller and the inscription changed to "Cor Ordanais an Airm (Army Ordnance Corps).
