Just picked this one up.. bought it because of the inscription on the caseback..
41847 was Milton's regimental number. The last date is 1941. I am going to see if I can find his service history. I especially want to find out why engraved as 5th echelon as my knowledge of NZ Army history was that there were three echelons. So may have meant to have been a unit designation engraved wrongly. We will see.I read that date as 4 18 47, 18th April 1947 or have i got that wrong? is the last figure a 1
I cant decipher the bottom line, ive got 5th ech?????.
Intriguing, i would so love to find out the story behind that watch and its owner. I can see why you went for it, apart from the fact that its a very nice piece.
