New Zealand WW2 NZ Young Men's Christian Association (Y.M.C.A) Cap Badge - M & K W.
A scarce darkened Cap badge to the New Zealand Young Men's Christian Association or Y.M.C.A.
This is the WW2 version, with the Kiwi at the top, touching both sides of the wreath. They served in every theater of War, but after a number of Y.M.C.A personnel were captured in Greece and Crete, only serving Army personnel were used with prior Y.M.C.A experience.
Light wear, with some of the darken finish now gone, but good detail to front.
To back are two copper wire looped lugs, firm and original.
Maker marked to back center of "V" of the triangle to "M & K W" for Mayer and Kean of Wellington.
