This collection was obtained in Houston, Texas many years ago. It was sent to a young woman in 1946 following her request for insignia from the New Zealand forces. The original transmittal and documentation from the NZ Quartermaster have survived making this grouping quite unique. There are 40+ vintage cap badges and 20-30 pieces of cloth insignia. Some of the cap badges I imagine are quite scarce. Hope you enjoy. Bobgee

This is a really nice selection of old and now obsolete NZ badges and insignia. Thanks for sharing.

That's a pretty amazing collection of badges.  I am amazed that the NZ Army took that much time to ID and sent that much stuff.  Great stuff Bob.
