I think worn in Vietnam. can find some info on Australian red cross in Vietnam but not with an NZ connection.

Worn by the New Zealand Red Cross Field Force Ladies working at the Australian Field Hospital and in the field providing welfare services to the New Zealand troops in South Vietnam, The troops loved them and they still hold regular reunions.

Great patches, had not seen or heard of this group before. The Vietnam link makes it all the more interesting.

awesome
thanks RNeil
I have never seen them before. are they common or desirable items in NZ?
the red cross association doesn't really make them military as such however they did serve in a war zone nursing and caring for our troops.
Im very pleased with them
