A large proportion of these records contain microfilm strips that cannot be produced in the reading room for preservation reasons. However, a file that contains microfilm strips can be digitised on reader request and the digital copy will be linked to the Archway entry (if we have not already done so).
If you would like to request that a personnel file be digitised please contact us by either visiting our Wellington Reading Room or by using our Remote Reference Service:

No restrictions except:
W5573, W5614, W5712-W5715, W5725
All records are open, except for reference enquiries from private individuals in sealed envelopes, which are restricted for 10 years from date of transfer to protect the privacy of enquirers. At the end of this 10 year period, the restrictions shall be reviewed jointly by the New Zealand Defence Force and Archives New Zealand. (Note: the sealed envelopes do not contain information about service personnel, they are enquiries from private individuals only).
Note: Reviews are not complete at this time. All such files should therefore be regarded as restricted until such time as their status is updated to 'open' in Archway. This applies even if the restriction expiry date, as recorded in the record list on Archway, has been reached or passed.
NZDF Historian, Headquarters New Zealand Defence Force, Private Bag, Wellington.
