The Colin Churchill collection also contained an ‘E’ Squadron (New Zealand) die-cast collar badge with a flat back in bronze (Figures 316-317).   These bronze collar badges would follow the convention of Officer’s wearing Officers Service Dress post-1902 although again no photographic evidence of it being worn has been identified.
