By Such Deeds
By Such Deeds by Group Captain C.M. Hanson, OBE, RNZAF (Rtd) compiles the honours and awards in the Royal New Zealand Air Force from 1923 to 1999. Being the result of eleven years of painstaking research into the deeds of over 3200 RNZAF servicemen and women, it is an indispensable reference for historians, medal collectors, and genealogists.
By Such Deeds forms a virtual Who’s Who of the RNZAF and provides a unique insight into 77 years of its history and operation – in war and in peace. Brought together for the first time in this unique publication is a vast amount of information – over half-a-million words in some 600 pages.
All known honours and awards, including foreign, are recorded, from the VC to mentions in despatches. Also included are Commendations for Brave Conduct and Valuable Service in the Air, Pathfinder Force Badges and Log Book endorsements.
