Below is an image taken at Waitangi in 1980. The Guard and Signal Party are all in No 2’s (Blues not Whites). It is apparent that this happened in 1978 and 79. Are there any Communicators who were at Waitangi in 1980 who can shed some light on the reason for ordering winter uniform in the middle of summer. Ships at Waitangi were Canterbury and Otago.
Here is a video clip from 1960 which some of you may even feature. Whites were worn in 1960. Click HERE to view. Thank you Tony Bullock for the link.
