Hi Lettman,
The following is from my collection. The last picture is a copy of the original NZEF Order No 495, 31 January 1918.

Thanks for this. I wondered what the 1 1/2-inch version looked like. The 2-inch patch is of the type authorised for the AIF.

Sergeant Frederick William Watson,12/1020 receives his DCM from General Birdwood ,at Hornchurch in June 1916.

He is wearing an interesting MG patch .

He was later commissioned as a Lieutenant and killed in action.

(thanks to Ray for sending this over)
