The New Zealand Cyclist Corps was
raised 5 April 1915 and embarked with 12th Reinforcements from
Wellington. 2 more Companies were created from reinforcements and they
joined with 2nd Australian Divisional Cyclist Company to form the 2nd
ANZAC Cyclist Battalion.
When the Australian Company was withdrawn, 16
January 1918, the unit became the 22nd Corps Cycle Battalion.
The Corps was disbanded in England in May 1919
The NZ Cyclists badge
