Afghanistan Deployment Banner

This banner was hung in the dining hall at Headquarters in Bamyan Province, Afghanistan, to surprise the CRIB 13 personnel when they arrived. Before each contingent arrived in Afghanistan, a banner was made for families to write messages to their loved ones.

‘Task Group CRIB’ referred to the New Zealand Provincial Reconstruction Team (NZPRT) serving in the Bamyan Province. Each 6 month rotation of personnel was given a consecutive CRIB number. Task Group CRIB 13 served from October 2008 to April 2009.

More than 3,500 Defence Personnel – a mixture of Army, Air Force and Navy – were deployed to Afghanistan from September 2001 to April 2013.

Donated by the New Zealand Defence Force via Lieutenant Gina Goodridge who served in Task Group CRIB 13 as a Logistics Officer.
