New Zealand Defence Force Personnel Records (Archives Reference: AABK 18805) are some of our most frequently consulted records. These records comprise paper and microfilm and, due to the potential for them to be damaged, the original records may not be viewed. The nature of the original records, the large number of orders and the relatively poor quality of the copies has prompted us to look at alternative copying methods and we will now be providing digital copies which will be delivered electronically.
