Here’s another Christmas Card:

This Christmas card was sent by members of 209 Battery, a unit of the New Zealand 29 Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment. The unit served in various locations in the Pacific during WWII, including New Caledonia and the Solomon Islands.

The card probably dates from Christmas 1943 when the unit was stationed on Vella Lavella.
