Default New Zealand Dress Regulations 1852-1909

Hi to everyone,
I am writing a book on the Dress Regulations of the New Zealand Militia, Volunteers, Permanent and Constabulary Forces 1852-1909.
This book is a prequel to our previous books on NZ clothing and equipment 1910-1945.
If anyone has any evidence based information, period photos, accoutrements, uniforms or cloth badges then I would like to hear from you.
Please PM if you you do have items that you can photograph in the style I am using.
I am not doing metal badges but I am covering proficiency badges from the period as well as belts, pouches, hats, caps, helmets, jackets, tunics etc.

Thanks.
Barry

Hi Mate,

Properly no use to your book, but I had these photos of early NZ badges saved to my computer.
I don't know anything about pre WW1 badge and the photos are not mine, but anyway for your information

Thanks for bring these badges to this thread.
I do know what they all mean and hopefully the owner will contact me.
