Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment Cap Badge (StayBrite)

Flag_of_New_ZealandIn the 1980’s the plonkers at the NZDF procurement office decided to save a penny on metal polish by contracting with the dreaded StayBrite badge company to provide the cap badges for the Infantry Regiments. They were complete crap. They are easy to distinguish as the lugs will be snapped off the back. Instead of being made of real metal alloys like brass they were made from brittle anodised aluminium. We all hated them.
