Dominion President's Collar and Korowai

 

The photographs showing the Dominion President's collar ( chain of office)  and cloak (korowai) will give members a chance for a close up look. There are 54 club badges on the collar, many from clubs who have long since closed, and some of the badges are older versions. I believe that this korowai is a replacement of the original one which was accidentally destroyed. If any member has information about the korowai and its history please advise.

NOTE.   While Alan Rattray was Dominion President his car was broken in to and the president's korowai and chain of office were stolen. The cloak was a very valuable item as it had been presented to the Association  by a maori tribe. In 1988 a new cloak was made by Bill Allen of the Masterton Savage Club and presented to the association.
