The following megaphone is a recent addition to my collection, and although not badge related it is worth sharing.
I have traced the use of megaphones by the NZ Military as far back as early 1907, my one sadly is not dated but I would date it between 1910 to the 1930s, it has a small arrow mark stamped in the leather, and hand written in very faded black Indian ink are the words “Auckland Machine Gun Section.”

The following 3rd Company NZMGC Star listed on Trademe closed last night.

Interestingly it is the very same NZMGC Star that is discussed in posts #427 & #428 and was attributed to William Riddell, the interesting part of course is that no mention is made of Riddell in this latest auction.
