THE 10TH BATTALION CROSS

This cross, in its natural colour is in the form of a Celtic cross except that the joining surround is not circular but straight.

The lower left link is missing - the cross is in the condition as it was when recovered from the battlefield in 1918, as the Commonwealth War graves Commission began its work.
