Battle Dress Tunic & trousers to a lieutenant in the NZ Engineers.

Unfortunately no name with this one but this uniform is one of my favorites. More than likely a coming home uniform.  the BD tunic has had the collar opened up and the trousers have had the thigh pocket removed both to give a smarter appearance to the uniform. The NZ titles on the epaulettes have been cut down and stitched on and the rank pips are another example of using the British coloured rank design again this is, I think, an attempt to make the wearer stand out and literally add a bit of colour to the khaki BD. This Lieutenant served both in the Pacific and in Italy as he has been awarded both the Pacific and Italy Stars.
