New Zealand Memorial Cross

$22.73 GST added at checkout

The NZ Memorial Cross is awarded to the next of kin of all New Zealand servicemen and women who were killed while on war service or operational service overseas, or who subsequently died of wounds received while on war service or operational service overseas, since the commencement of World War Two. Two versions of the New Zealand Memorial Cross have been struck: one during the reign of King George VI, and one during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The King George VI cross is the only one available in replica and is worn from a thin 10mm ecclesiastical purple coloured ribbon suspended around the neck, while the Queen Elizabeth II cross is worn as a brooch, with no ribbon. The award is not included in the order of wear. This is because the King George VI cross is quite small and is not a medal.

Product Description

The NZ Memorial Cross is a silver cross patonce, measuring 32mm in diameter and is awarded to the next of kin of all New Zealand servicemen and women who were killed while on war service or operational service overseas, or who subsequently died of wounds received while on war service or operational service overseas, since the commencement of World War Two. Two versions of the New Zealand Memorial Cross have been struck: one during the reign of King George VI, and one during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The King George VI cross is the only one available in replica and is worn from a thin 10mm ecclesiastical purple coloured ribbon suspended around the neck, while the Queen Elizabeth II cross is worn as a brooch, with no ribbon. The award is not included in the order of wear. This is because the King George VI cross is quite small and is not a medal.

Up to two New Zealand Memorial Crosses are issued to the family of each individual.

For deaths during the Second World War the first cross was awarded in the late 1940s or the 1950s to the mother. If the mother was deceased the first cross was awarded to the father, or if he was also deceased to the eldest sister, or the eldest brother if the military service person had no living sisters. A second cross was awarded to the widow, eldest daughter or eldest son (in that order of precedence). If the deceased military service person was not married and had no children only one Memorial Cross was issued.
