Honours Database Information

Searching the Database

The database can be searched using partial text, so a search for TOM will return all records containing TOM. It is also possible to narrow the search down by choosing the field you wish to search (Default is all fields). This can be achieved by using the drop down box to the right of the search entry field.

You can then view the record by clicking View (Extreme right of each returned record). Once in View mode you can then use the Next Record & Previous Record links underneath the WW1 N.Z.E.F Honours Database heading.

Each award is entered as a separate database entry to allow specific information to be recorded. This means that multiple records exist for those men and women who were awarded more than once.

Uploading information to the Database

If you have information you would like to contribute to the database, you can upload it by first viewing a record (It does not have to be the record you wish to contribute to) and clicking the blue link (above the displayed record). This will take you to the Upload form where you can choose to upload a picture or text.

Information Sources

Every database entry has been compiled using the NZEF WW1 Unit Histories (Those no longer governed by Copyright). Additional information, including Photo's, Known location & Citations have either been uploaded by members of the public, other non Copyright publications or service records in private hands.

I have been given permission from the Auckland Cenotaph to include a link to the Cenotaph database record.

Note on recorded Rank

In most cases the recorded Rank is that of the recipients Rank at the time of the award, however some unit histories record the Rank as at De-Mob (Such as the Machine Gun Corp).
