Badge, NZ Rifle BrigadeAbout this object
This is a World War One hat badge from the New Zealand Rifle Brigade Reinforcements (who were affectionately known as 'the Dinks').
The badge depicts the crest of the Earl of Liverpool - a lion rampant holding a Man of War's church pennant on a chapeau.
It was brought back from the war by Robert Douglas (Doug) Story. Doug farmed at 'Venlaw', assuming control after his father died in 1918. The family always owned land collectively with the oldest son in charge.
