New Zealand Long Service and Good Conduct Medals - The Royal New Zealand Naval Volunteer Reserve Long Service and Good Conduct Medal
About this medal
This medal was instituted in 1985 with eligibility backdated to 1 December 1977. It is awarded to ratings in the Royal New Zealand Naval Volunteer Reserve for fifteen years continuous service at least twelve of which must be efficient. It is identical to the British award which was adopted for New Zealand use in 1925.
Because these awards are time and efficiency based, the relatively simple administration instructions were incorporated in the Royal Warrant.
Clasps and Bars
Clasps are awarded for additional periods of ten years service at least seven of which must be efficient.
