Default New Zealand Engineers Tunnelling Company

According to Regional Cox’s work: (Military Badges of the British Empire 1914-1918, pages 310-312). The New Zealand Engineers Tunnelling Company (2927) was a larger version of the NZE cap badge (2923).

Does anyone have a size of the Tunnelling cap badge and or more information regarding the tunneling company / cap badge??

Thank you
