The Kiwis are noted more for action in Africa and Italy, but one division, the NZ 3rd Infantry Division seen a bit of action against the Japanese in the Solomons. Note the helmet covers, they look exactly like the kind the British Army Commandos were wearing in 1941-42 in England and the raids.

NZ Troops on Fiji with American Troops May 1942, NZ unit and U.S. unit unknown. The U.S. unit may be a element of that Task Force 6814, you know the unit that would become the Americal Division, those guys get out to the South Pacfic very early in the war, like in March 1942.
