WWI New Zealand Forces Officers Swagger Stick. A rare early WWI New Zealand Forces Officer's Swagger Stick with the emblem on the pommel being the same as the 1911 Button, with the 4 stars within a circle and NEW ZEALAND FORCES surrounding it. The underside of the white metal pommel has the maker's details, but we cannot make them out.
There is also tubular neck RD794 (registration number). The cane is made of bamboo, ending in a shape made out of a. 303 bullet head and part cartridge. The first New Zealand Ordnance Soldiers wore the standard New Zealand Forces buttons which had been introduced in 1911.There is much photographic evidence of these buttons been worn by both the NZEF, NZAOC and the home service NZAOC. The 1911 button would fade from general use as individual brass buttons came into use for each different regiment and Corps. Size: 66.5 cm (26 1/8 inches) Weight: 60 g.
