You've picked up on the little detail - the stamp actually commemorates the sterling, and oft unrecognised work of the little known survey squadron of the SASR. They specialise in running covert survey schemes, using lightweight air-droppable theodilites, and camouflaged, extra long tape measures.

Unit motto - "who measures, wins"

It also explains the lack of black nasty stripes across the eye area. It's impossible to operate precision surveying equipment with a black nasty stripe, so all members of the ultra-elite survey squadron are given a face transplant before discharge or RTU, to preserve their anonymity.
