Badge, Military Light InfantryAbout this object
This Light Infantry badge is the right collar badge of the New Zealand Volunteers, a unit of the New Zealand Army during the period 1858-1911. The badge was also used by the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry Regiment which is a unit of the British Army, where it is still used today. British forms of the badge were made in different styles for different units during World War One.
This badge belonged to Robert (Doug) Story who served with the New Zealand Expeditionary Force. It is likely he acquired the badge during his service at the Western Front, meaning it is probable that this badge once belonged to a British Light Infantry soldier.
