Ian, I don't know that the little chisel has necessary seen military service, as my understanding is that the "broad Arrow" symbol indicates that it was Government property and dates back as far as the convict era. If it was mine, I would be doing some research into it. A nice find.
If it's old, treat it like gold.

Hi wee-allis Australia largest military base is a Townsville and during the W2 there was a large USA base here.
Surprisingly there is not much around with the broad arrow on it 
"military service" yes I most likely did not leave the country but sounds good

Hello all
I thought Defence had the D arrow D while the prison system had the broad arrow.

Cheers Scott

My understanding of the markings was that it changed over time like the railway stuff did. They had NSWTD and NSWGR, that I know of and possibly more. These changed over time and different Governments. So D.D. and the arrow were quite possibly just a Government mark from different times but my understanding was that DD was department of defense and the arrow was early gaol related.

Ian, I don't know anything about the tool, but more importantly, where have the Dexters gone?
