New Zealand 12 & XIII (Nelson Marlborough & West Coast) Regiment Cap and Collar Badge - Gilt Fired Brass
A single piece, gilt fired brass Cap and Collar badge to the New Zealand 12 & XIII (Nelson Marlborough & West Coast) Regiment (With Kings Crown). Formed in 1923, with the merge of the 2 Regiments, the badges are in great condition. Note that this badges was universally unpopular with both Regiments, and men continued to wear their 12th and 13th cap badges well after WW2. The missing collar, with the Stag facing the same direction as the cap badge is near impossible to find (but does exist).
Light wear to front on both badges, with a pair of looped lugs, firm and original to each.
No maker mark.
