Service Honours

Applying for Service Honours

Four Months Prior to Presentation: To make the process as easy as possible, it is recommended that the brigade request a copy of an honours due list at least 4 months prior to the presentation by emailing the Service Honours Administrator.  Please note that awards cannot be presented before the anniversary date i.e:  Presentation date 16/08/2010 - Completion date 20/08/2010

Two Months Prior to Presentation:  For all service honours, the UFBA office must receive the completed application forms and payment at least 2 months prior to the intended presentation.  All forms are available for download below.  Confirmation may be sent to advise that the application forms are received.  Payment is required before the order is released.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q » What's the process for applying for service honours?

Applications should be submitted at least two months prior to the presentation.  The UFBA checks the eligibility of every recipient upon receipt of applications.  If there is a discrepancy in the service record, the Service Honours Administrator will request a formal letter detailing the necessary changes, and signed by the CFO/DCFO, before making any amendments to the record of the member. 

If there are no changes and the UFBA records match that of the brigade’s, then the office proceeds with the order and sends an invoice to the brigade. 

Without exception, orders are placed and put on HOLD until payment is received.  Once payment is received, the Service Honours Administrator will release the order and it will be sent directly from our jeweller to the brigade.

Q » Our brigade has a Gold Star or 50-Year Service presentation coming up. How do we get a UFBA representative to make the presentation?

When planning Gold Star and 50-Year service presentations, keep in mind that the UFBA requires at least six months notice to organise presenters for these events. 

You should notify the UFBA of your upcoming Gold Star or 50-Year Service presentation by sending a letter to the Chief Executive Officer at PO Box 56079, Tawa, Wellington 5249.

It is the prerogative of the UFBA President to attend the Gold Star functions, or appoint another appropriate representative. If there is a request from the brigade for a particular person to present their Gold Star, it must be approved by the UFBA President.  Either the President or Vice President must attend a 50-year medal presentation.
