Documents Relating to New Zealand's Participation in the Second World War 1939–45: Volume I

State of Equipment Issued

State of Equipment Issued

We had no field or anti-tank artillery, but for a matter of fact neither had any other British formation. We had, however, an adequate amount of arms and equipment:

Per Battalion

  • 18 Bren guns

  • 10 Boys [anti-tank] rifles

  • 3 Bren carriers

  • 25 per cent of unit transport

We had, however, two complete Bus Companies which could move our whole force at one lift.
