Default Unknown NZ formation sign

Hello Gentlemen,

Can someone kindly tell me the unit and time period represented by this badge? I purchased it in New Zealand about 1985.

Hi Dob,
According to Malcolm Thomas and Cliff Lord's books, New Zealand Army Distinguishing Patches 1911-1991:

Your patch dates from 31 January 1974 when New Zealand Force South East Asia (NZFORSEA) was a Singapore based tri-service military Force.

Also worn by New Zealand Defence Support Unit (South East Asia) formed 1 October 1989 in Singapore.

And also worn by other NZ peacekeeping forces since.

Cheers, Tinto

No longer worn by NZDF but is still worn by the guards at Sembawang, Singapore.
