NZ East Timor Medal: This medal was instituted in 2001 to recognise New Zealand personnel (both military and non military) who served in East Timor from the commencement of the New Zealand involvement in June 1999. The obverse features the effigy of the Sovereign within the Royal styles and titles for New Zealand; and on the reverse, a representation of the head of a Kiwi, facing to the right and overshadowing a map of East Timor with the words “EAST TIMOR” below and, in the top right of the field, a sprig of olive leaves. The ribbon is the standard 32 millimetres in width, of white, black, red, green, red, black, and white stripes. The operational area means the political boundaries and airspace of the Non-self Governing Territory of East Timor and the maritime area of 50 nautical miles around East Timor and Atauro Island, and a corridor from anywhere within this maritime area for direct passage to Darwin, terminating at the outer limit of the territorial sea of Australia. A silver clasp ?East Timor? is awarded for additional service in the area. The qualifying period is continuous or aggregated service of 365 days or more.
