  1. looking at this the center is a British army rank "pip" and the star is all wrong as I would guess it is possible French as there are four Fleur - de - lis in the place of where loins should be and to my knowledge I don't think the British used Fleur - de - lis in their orders I would certainly keep away from this C

Joined 30.11.1908 , Retired 04.05.1922 (Died) ; Warrant number 96530 I noticed that their warrant numbers are very close and they joined on the same day, so chances are they knew each other regards C

On the night of the 6 August 1914, the New Zealand government received a telegram from London that it would be "a great and urgent Imperial service" if New Zealand forces seized Samoa, which was a German territory. This was approved the next day, and four days later a mixed force of 1,413 men plus six nursing sisters. On the 29th August they landed unopposed at Apia. Thus the island of Upolu was the first German territory to be occupied in the name of King George V. Regards

I know that they are not a famous line regiment but I feel they certainly should be acknowledged for their commitment to ensuring troops are feed The Catering Corps is a unit that is always working to feed and ensure soldiers are always feed, they don;t have the same down times as other units in the field be it in training or operations and often have to work under very trying environments and conditions, just as their civilian counter parts do as well. Yes they like chefs in the oth
