When you submit personal information in the future could you please be as specific as possible as to your dates of activity below 60S.
All of this is important, both for your own record, and for the future of the organisation. The more acurate the information the better chance the organisation as a whole has of being taken seriously with regard to medallic recognition.
Remember, that since there are few official records of who went where, and in particular when, we are reliant on the efforts of the membership to help us record our history.
If you have any stories to tell or are willing to share photos that you may have then please contact the webmaster

Operation Deep Freeze The New Zealand Story
WEARING THE USASM
"Serving pers will not be given permission to wear this (USASM) on NZDF uniform - this has been confirmed by a series of CDF's. Once pers have left the Services, they are no longer under the direction and control of CDF and it is an individual's choice whether they wear these foreign awards. Many do so and are happy to justify it to any enquiry. NZDF does not condone it, but equally we are very unlikely ever to complain about it."
