Dated at Wellington this 2nd day of October 1989.
R J Tizard,
Minister of Defence.
This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on the 28th day after the date of their notification in the Gazette, revoke and replace the New Zealand Cadet Forces Medal Regulations 1969.
The regulations are made under the Royal Warrant dated 1 February 1950, as amended by Royal Warrants dated 8 January 1955, 20 June 1960, 21 December 1964, and 30 November 1971.
The regulations make a number of minor changes of detail relating to qualifying service. More significantly, the new regulations add to the kinds of service that may be counted towards qualifying service, service as a cadet aged 18 years or more in any of the cadet forces of New Zealand or any Commonwealth country of which the Queen is head of State.
