Miniature silvered medal with fern-leaf ribbon suspender; the face with the head of King George VI facing left, circumscribed ‘GEORGIVS VI D : G : BR. OMN : REX F : D ; IND : IMP. (George VI by the Grace of God King of Great Britain, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India), signed ‘HP’; the reverse inscribed ‘FOR / SERVICE TO / NEW ZEALAND’ and dated ‘1939-1945’ above a fern leaf; diameter 18.77mm (0.74 inch); on correct ribbon.

The Medal was instituted on 30 September 1948 and awarded for a total of 28 days’ full-time service or six months' part-time service in the Armed Forces of New Zealand, the National Military Reserve or Home Guard between 3 September 1939 and 2 September 1945.

This example appears to be of relatively recent manufacture.
