Collection of Auckland Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira, 1984.294, U250.1
Coldstream Guards tunic
H.Q. Household Div Horseguards, Whitehall
This uniform was received as a result of an appeal made by the New Zealand Branch of the Colstream Guards Association who wished to provide a suitable memorial to Guardsmen who fought beside New Zealanders in two World Wars. In 1984 there were about 100 ex-Guardsmen (from the five regiments of Foot Guards and two regiments of Household Cavalry) living in New Zealand, mostly in the Auckland area. [NZ Herald 23.8.1984, p28
