Hi Tarabelle,
Certainly an interesting variation of this badge. What size is it?
Cheers,
John

That would be hat badge size and seems to have been made to be worn as such.
Others may know more about it.
Cheers,
John

A thought, this badge may have been made/worn in the Pacific theatre during WW2. Some souvenir items were made of plastic or similar material.

This is not the first plastic NZ badge that I have come across.
Just as a thought, Onwards badges worn by all 2NZEF, I suspect made for home use.
