Default Non military NZ badge wanted.

Hope it's okay to post this here.
Looking for badge No. 676 from Lord & Tennant's Anzac Elite book.
Description: "Metal wings made by Millard Mfg. Wellington.
This insignia was made for the "pop culture market" in the 1980s and is non military."
I contacted Millard but minimal order was 500, I only need one.
Can anyone hook me up with one?

Cheers,
fougasse1940.

Guys I can call Cliff this morning and ask about this. From memory this turned out to be a badge made for a band in the 1980s - probably shouldnt have been in the book. Never seen one for sale ever.

Thanks Shaun, do you remember which band?
I agree with you that it shouldn't have been in the book.

Default Non Mil Badge

Sorry dont have one and dont collect wings. The badge was shown because it was available at the time the book was written and I felt it necessary that people knew it was a fantasy insignia rather than a short lived trial badge.

Thanks for all input so far. I was under the impression that it might be an easy to find item, but apparently its not.
