Default NZ star-shaped collar badge

I know precious little about New Zealand military badges but have just acquired with other items a small, collar badge size item with which I could do with some help in identification. An elongated star (a bit like the Worcestershire Regiment) with the letters NZ in the centre. Probably nothing special but I like to know what I've got. Any help (and I am sure there is a lot out there) would be gratefully received. Regards. David

it's a WW1 "1 NZEF" 18th Reinforcements (Infantry) badge.

the cap similar, but not elongated, centre "NZ" replaced with "18", with a scroll under "NEW ZEALAND"
