Brent , how good would it be to see someone put together a reference book of New Zealand's involvement in the Boer war, in regards to the uniforms, badges and equipment that they wore .

I think if you include arms it would make a good book.

Here's a super rare slouch hat that was worn by Major Frederick Francis, who commanded two squadrons of the 4th New Zealand Mounted Rifles Contingent to South Africa in March 1900.

I have a "New Zealand" title that I got from L. Osbourne that is an exact match as the one on this hat.
