I have a postcard of an anonymous NZRB man with the "black diamond" on the shoulder. Happy to post if you want me to although it might just be more of the same. The postcard came from New Plymouth so logical to assume he came from that area.

A talk with an old NZRB man said that while they were well-known as the Dinks they also were called the "square Dinks" (square patch) and the inverted triangle wearers were called the "arse upside down Dinks".

The very common NZRB cap and collar badge is called the "monkey on the stick". Sad to think that lots more detail like this has gone to the grave....
