    Stunning set of phots gents, stunning. I knew of the NZDF but never seen so many piccies. Its interesting to see various influences - clear Commonwealth and regimental tradition in their parade dress, colours, stable belts etc, whilst the kit looks to be a bit more American-influenced, LAVs, UH1s, M203s, PASGTs... And of course the pictures of Kiwi and Aussies deployed together.

    I also had no idea they use Desert DPM as well as the green and brown DPM.

    Great thread.

    Nor do we feel any shame whatsoever.

    I like the term 'appropriate'. On a par with 'creatively acquire' and 'liberated', used with the proper tone of voice of course

    I use the terms, "sourced", "acquired" and "on temporary secondment for evaluation". If you go on a course etc you should always return with more than with which you left...
