Hi gents

Does anyone know if the Kiwi's in the Pacific used a 'captured and inspected in the field' intelligence stamp, similar to the stamp US forces used, where enemy items picked up were looked at and then passed for keeping?

If so, does anyone have a pic they could show me?

Cheers

Hi Barry

Many thanks for the reply. A collector friend in the US has an item with a partial stamp he doesn't recognise and thought it may be NZ or Australian. I'll see if he can send me an image which might help identify it and I'll post it here.

Cheers
