Can you help? WO2 J.C. Philp [sic] no. 11120

I am the curator of the Great Cobar Heritage Centre. A great coat found in an op. shop was recently donated to our museum. The shoulder badge is for the RAEME; the sleeve badge is for a Sergeant Major and a label inside identifies it as having belonged to WO2 J.C. Philp [sic] no. 11120. I'd like to find out something about the age and possible uses of the coat and how it ended up in Vinnie's in our outback NSW town of Cobar. If you can help or redirect me to someone/where that can help, I'd be most grateful.
