The quill refers to the unit's support mission. The compass rose denotes readiness and overseas service during World War II. The wreath of laurel denotes honour and achievement. The bezant recalls courage, and its center simulates the shape of the Finance Corps inisgnia, commemorating the unit's finance service.
