    Do you know a source for the 2NZEF in the Western Desert Distinguishing patches, particularly the 24th Battalion? Interesting to note that my fathers formal photo (my avatar) does not show one.
    I am guessing they were worn on the right side if the hat except for the MMG?
    What was the significance of the Puggaree colours? Your examples show mainly "brown, red, brown" except for NZASC which is "Tan, White, Tan"?
