It is an original nationality title, and not a fake

A nice early title (circa 1940-1943) most likely Egyptian made. Later titles were screen printed. These white on black titles are specific to the 2nd Division 2NZEF.
The 3rd Division 2NZEFIP had black on khaki while non divisional troops in the Pacific and the RNZAF had red on khaki.

I have several embroidered "white on black" titles where the quality is much better. So Barry's suggestion of Egyptian made is interesting and possibly correct.
