Christmas Video Messages From Around the World
17 December 2015
Approximately 182 New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) personnel will be deployed on operations around the world over the Christmas period this year.
While Christmas will be a normal working day on operations, the deployed Kiwis will be able to mark the occasion, with some planning a traditional Christmas lunch and others a customary game of backyard cricket or rugby.
Personnel in Antarctica, Korea, and parts of the Middle East may even experience a white Christmas.
From wherever they are in the world, NZDF personnel would like to wish their families, friends and the rest of the country a very Merry Christmas.
