Chief of Army bans "death symbology/iconography". What's a rifle for General? ICB? Crossed swords???
This is crazy.
A soldier's job is to close with and kill the enemy.
Death goes with the territory.
Soldiers need to be very good at bringing death to the enemy.
This badge is American but it'll give you the idea as to what the Chief of Army wants to ban.
And this is the Infantry Combat Badge, issued to Australian infantry soldiers after their first engagement in combat with the enemy.
It's worn on the left breast in uniform.
The badge features a bayonet. A bayonet has one purpose.
