Rare WW1 40th New Zealand Infantry Reinforcements Sweetheart Badge

Rare WW1 40th New Zealand Infantry Reinforcements Sweetheart Badge

A fern wreath below a king's crown and with a scroll below "Reinforcements" tested as silver (unmarked) with a 9C gold plated (unmarked) insert B / XL to the centre. XL = 40 in Roman numerals. With original pin and c clasp fitting, fully functional. Circa 39mm tall. In excellent conditions with no breaks or repairs. Rare.

Not recorded either in Oldham or Lowe other than a statement in the latter (p41) which states that the 40th Reinforcements departed from New Zealand on 10th July 1918 and that these later infantry reinforcements would have worn the First NZEF pattern cap badge. So this sweetheart is probably the only unique identifying insignia for this particular reinforcement company and is previously unrecorded.

New Zealand WW1  - Matched Facing Pair of Blackened Collar badges to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade

New Zealand WW1 - Matched Facing Pair of Blackened Collar badges to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade

A matched facing pair of die struck collar badges with two original loops to the reverse of each. The cap badge and collar badges were the same size. The collars were worn facing inwards, the cap badge faced to the left. Circa 4cm tall. A lovely set with virtually no wear to the black finish.

According to Oldham, these were also re-introduced in WW2 for wear by various NZ Home Guard and National Military units during WW2. As these are a bit taller than others I have encountered and without the distinctive small rondel on the lions lower arm / shoulder, I do wonder whether these are of WW2 manufacture. Any information welcome.
