    finally got my wish of an armed constabulary button..true new zealand..yeeha !!!

    Hi all.hope you are all doing fine....im rapt... been longing for a n/z war button of our own first military forces..the a/c were formed in 1867 and were our first military force here in lil ole n/z....it was formed when the imperial troops were sent back to england as the goverment at that time pushed for a self reliant stand..in other words couldn't afford all the british troops ...anyway I have dug british regiment buttons which are a find in themselves but this was always on my wish list for sure..

    got the little suka down about eight inches below an old redoubt that was manned by a/c troopers in 1869...hope one of you can throw some light on the maker of it...hope pic of back is clear enough...thanks for looking guys and a final...yeehhaaa !!!
