Zambia Army Signal Corps
Officers Cap and collar set 1964 -1970
[Colin Hodgkins collection ZAM 0007]
This is an example of the Zimbabwe Corps of Signals first cap and collar set.
This actual set was obtained by Cliff Lord when he interviewed Lt. Col. Clarke (Royal New Zealand Corps of Signals) for his book ‘Swift and Sure’ A History of The Royal New Zealand Corps of Signals). They were worn by the then Major Clarke OC of 1 Squadron Zambia Army Signal Corps until 1970.
We know that officers wore the above cap badge with the above infantry collar badges, certainly up to 1970, but it has proven difficult to establish if this is still the case. I would welcome any conformation of the current issue badges and previous issues post 1970. We would also like to establish if Other Ranks wore the same.
