We are still working hard at the cataloguing project and currently we are adding some of the smaller items to the military display which have, until now, been in storage. The badges require polishing and the results are quite sparkly – getting rid of many years of dirt is very satisfying.
There is a collection of ten ‘pips’ worn on the shoulders of an officer’s uniform. The more pips meant the higher rank. The picture (above) shows you a pip which has not been polished next to one that has.
Great results have also been achieved with a common NZ Military Service ONWARD badge (below). All these items are now available to view in our military cabinet.
