Hi Mike

No, you're on the money I think. I couldn't think of anything else that fits!

It'll be a "post war" award worn by a proud lady.

Many, many thanks!

WOW, Mike! Don't know how to thank you. Beer? Coffee? Wine? I saw it and bought it because of the date(s). It wasn't very expensive either and I'm almost tempted to bung the guy another few quid...

Hi Brent

Here it is. This is from "The Lyttelton Times" of 27 December, 1917. There are a couple of other printings of this notice.

Hi

I've seen an "AUCKLAND" one (very thin, handcut, much like these). Was told that it could have been for NZ Red Cross.

I think that it also curved "upwards" like these do.
