For Mr Tony Abbott's visit to the USS Blue Ridge
, the Australian Prime Minister wore a Royal Australian Air Force Flying jacket, with RAAF insignia. The PM is not a member of the military and not commander in chief, so it would be preferable for him not to wear a military uniform. The PM should be issued with a flying jacket for military visits, but with civilian insignia.
The US President is commander in chief of US armed forces, but even so does not wear military insignia. Instead the POTUS flying jacket has the US Presidential Seal
Following the US custom, the Australian PM could wear a jacket with the Australian Arms and kangaroo insignia.
Name Patch for Left Side of PMs Jacket
As a member of the Australian Parliament, can use the Australian Arms:
Prime Minister of Australia
Kangaroo emblem for Right Side of PM's jacket
The kangaroo emblem is commonly used by the ADF
to identify Australian personnel in situations where the Australian
flag could be confused with the UK. It is also used by sporting teams and
so is suitable for a civilian to wear. The green
of the National Colours
would be most suitable:
