Default New Zealand Equipment Book

Dear All,
If you are interested in WW1 and WW2 Commonwealth equipment there is a new book out called 'New Zealand Army Personal Equipment 1910-1945'
ISBN 0-9582535-9-5
The book is avaiable from the publishers www.willsonscott.biz
The book covers: Bandoliers, Belts, Compasses, Binoculars, Maps,Watches, Frogs, Firearms, Holsters, Edged Weapons, Anti gas equipment, Pouches, Straps and Attachments, Saddlery,Helmets, Mess Tins, Water Bottles, Equipment, Miscellaneous, and Kit reconstructions, plus 4 appendices and most transports to and from NZ during WW1 and WW2.
We have had some very postive comments and it is well worth the effort we put in.
Barry

Hi Barry, thanks for that. I had not heard of this this book. I take it you are one of the authors? I have clicked on the link but it does not show a sample page: would it be possible for you to share one with us?

Cheers, Ade.

Dear Ada,
I have asked the publisher to add images to the site. The book is a black and white photo reference book and alot of the info is commom to Commonwealth countries.
Being a new member to this site, am I allowed to post photos.
I would like to balance the wounderfull Australian uniforms with some of my own.
Barry

I also got my copy from the publishers when it came out, Had been waiting since the Omaka air show when I had first heard about it.
Great book.
