    Close....................but not close enough.
    The reason I disagree is because the scroll states "ROYAL ENGINEERS" and the New Zealand Engineer Volunteers, although having an almost identical cap badge, initially had the words. NZ ENGINEER VOLS," changed later to "ROYAL NZ ENGINEERS". Never just "ROYAL ENGINEERS, which to me that indicates that it is an English Regiment's cap badge.

    Here is another example of it which was used this instance by the 1 st London Field Company Royal Engineers.

    Have you tried putting it on a USA site ?

    Where did you actually get it from ? Would it definitely be an NZ piece do you think ?

    Cheers, Red :)
