Dont think they have marines, though they probably have a group of sailors trained in naval infantry like tatics.

Australia has no Marines, but regular battallions are capable of amphibious operations, and RAN Seamanship branch sailors are used to make up boardin parties.

funny how their ranks are very similar to the US Coast Guard Aux.. I don't understand why so many countries wont take the risk of coming-up with their own unique system. No cultural identity anymore. With animals like the blue ringed octopus and box jelly fish, Australia is loaded with good sea life to draw ideas from.

Well actually there's no official Coast Guards for Australia, recently alot of people are wondering if Australia is able to defend it's coast from refugees & smuggling, but the government of Australia insist that the Royal Australia Navy is capable of doing coast guard duties.

The link from the previous thread is actually volunteer coast guard, so strictly speaking Australia do not have coast guard.

The Australian Volunteer Coast Guard is identical to US Coast Guard Auxiliary. Quite interesting, I am not sure who supports them? In both US & Canada there is an official Agency to back the Auxiliary up.

I too am curious though, why they adopted the USCGA insignia, even Canada created their own system.

Do Austrialian police forces have maritime units to carry out coast guard type missions?

Hi Robb herrwiggly here, as to the insignia of the above agency, I can see why other organisations use the U.S. style, it's so easy to use on shirt collars, ( for example US navy) than cumbersome shoulder boards as used by the Royal navy and other navies. Imagine trying to put our Admiral's rank in minature form on the collar. What I like about the US system it's unique in the way that each rank is denoted by 1 symbol (except general ranks) of course. I believe a much tidier system all together. Obviously everybody may not agree. There is of course ,much to said for national identity in insignias and traditions, but I believe practicality in working dress is more important. :D :D :D Cheers
