This badge was made in support of the Anti-Vietnam War demonstrations on the 27th of March 1966. Australia was involved in the Vietnam War in an advisory capacity from 1962. It increased its involvement after 1965 with the commitment of troops. Protests against the War reached their peak in Australia in the late 1960s and early 1970s and this badge was an object used in this period of renewed protest. Australian troops were withdrawn from Vietnam by the Whitlam Labor government in 1972.
