Roll of Honour

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

- The 'Ode of Remembrance', Laurence Binyon (1914)

Overview

The Roll of Honour is a record of the names of all New Zealanders who have died while in service with the RNZAF or other air forces since 1915.

They represent not only those who have been killed in action, but also those who have died in accidents, sickness or of natural causes while in uniform. There are over 4,600 names on the Roll, which also features the regularly changing personal story of one of the individuals listed. Below you will find the stories of those whose stories we have featured in the past.

As the Roll of Honour serves a memorial function, please feel welcome to lay a poppy.
