Australia's Chief of Army, Lieutenant General Angus Campbell, has issued a directive that prohibits the wearing of 'death' symbols.
Lieutenant General Campbell said the practice was arrogant, ill-considered and that it eroded the ethos of the Army.
The directive was circulated as an internal minute on April 17, and later posted to unofficial social media pages for commentary.
Several symbols were specifically prohibited because of their violent, murderous and vigilante symbolism including the Grim Reaper, the Skull and Crossbones, Spartans, and the Phantom or Punisher.
