Lithgow Coo-ee Ribbon
The purple Coo-ee Badge was not the only ribbon given to the Coo-ees.
It was reported in The Farmer and Settler on 5th November 1915 that ‘Lithgow turned out in force to see the last of the “Coo-ees,” and each man was given a tri-color ribbon bearing the inscription, “Lithgow, 3/11/15. ‘Coo-ee!’ Good Luck!” as a souvenir of the occasion’.
I was recently sent a photograph (below) of one of these ribbons that was presented to the Coo-ee March recruits at Lithgow.
