The Orders, Decorations and Medals of New Zealand
Links and other references
The assistance of Phillip O'Shea, the New Zealand Herald, has been invaluable in preparing this section, in particular his generous permission for the use here of his original images of many of the New Zealand decorations - most of which he was responsible for designing. David Baguley, Director of the New Zealand Honours Secretariat, has also been very helpful in sending the latest Order of Precedence and allowing the use of official images.
Ed Emering kindly provided pictures of the 2 forms of the New Zealand General Service Medal 1992. Bruce Dorsey contributed information on unofficial commemoratives. Mark Brewer provided a picture of his own New Zealand General Service Medal (Peacekeeping) and Lukasz Gaszewski supplied images of ribbons and lots of information. Roy Gould supplied pictures of the Wellington Free Ambulance Medal, Nick Brosnahan updated its terms of award, and David Horsley sent a picture of the NZ East Timor Medal. Mike Smith has also been extremely helpful, while Freddy of Philip Burman's sent pictures of the Queen Victoria issue of the Colonial Meritorious Service Medal.
