UNIFORM & KIT ISSUED TO THE NEW ZEALAND ARMY DURING WW2

This pictorial library is devoted to the recording of "Uniform and Kit" issued to a Soldier from New Zealand of any corps, during the Second World War. Consider it a virtual "Q" Store in New Zealand militaria. It is not exhaustive and will be added to over time. Any reader who wishes to contribute photographs and text will be recognised and credited with such information. I also invite collectors of other nation's militaria to forward content (please see our other countries listed on the drop down menu) - so that a comprehensive list of "Axis" and "Allies" uniform/kit is detailed.

THIS WEBPAGE IS CONSTANTLY BEING ADDED TO - SO PLEASE VISIT AGAIN

Brodie Pattern Helmet - inner view

Inner view of the British Brodie Pattern Mk II steel helmet. In contrast to the original Brodie style helmet from the First World War, the inner liner now consists of a black canvas type oilcloth with a rubber pad to cushion the crown of the helmet shell. The chin strap has changed from a half inch leather strap, to an elasticized khaki cotton webbing strap with two metal squares to attach to the helmet bails.
