To receive the New Zealand Gallantry Decoration:

 

NEW ZEALAND DEFENCE FORCE

Lieutenant Colonel John Charles DYER (P49877), Royal Regiment of New Zealand Artillery.

CITATION

Lieutenant Colonel Dyer, on 6 January 1999, was serving in Sierra Leone with the United Nations Mission when rebel forces attacked Freetown, evading strongpoints in the city which were being guarded by the Nigerian-led Intervention Force (ECOMOG). The evacuation of all remaining United Nations personnel from the country was then ordered. By this stage, United Nations vehicles had become targets for both the rebels and frightened ECOMOG soldiers. Nevertheless, Lieutenant Colonel Dyer traversed Freetown to ensure that all United Nations personnel were accounted for. This task became more dangerous as the day progressed and at one point, during the rescue of a group of military observers, Lieutenant Colonel Dyer and his vehicles came under fire from tense ECOMOG personnel. At all times, Lieutenant Colonel Dyer remained calm and in control displaying a considerable presence of mind and disregard for danger in an extremely stressful situation. Through his personal courage and an accurate appreciation of a changing and volatile situation, Lieutenant Colonel Dyer was able to accomplish the successful evacuation of one hundred and twenty military and civilian United Nations personnel from Sierra Leone.

 

Dated at Wellington this 5th day of June 2000.

MARIE SHROFF, Clerk of the Executive Council.

To receive the New Zealand Gallantry Star:

 

NEW ZEALAND DEFENCE FORCE

Colonel Neville John REILLY, O.N.Z.M. (T30975), Colonels' List, New Zealand Army.

CITATION

Colonel Reilly, between June and September 1999, served with the United Nations Mission to East Timor (UNAMET). Immediately the result of the referendum was announced, East Timor began to descend to a state of anarchy. Colonel Reilly was then asked by the United Nations to assume responsibility for the security of the United Nations Mission. It was during this period that he displayed exceptional courage and presence in the face of great physical threat from the rampant militia forces. He often ventured unarmed and with complete disregard to his personal safety to provide support to displaced United Nations staff and to reconnoitre escape routes for possible emergency evacuation of United Nations staff. On one specific occasion, he drove some five kilometres through militia controlled territory to rescue a colleague who was trapped by militia forces attacking the house in which he was hiding. He effected the rescue at considerable personal risk, displaying a total disdain for the chaos and danger around him. Colonel Reilly's calm, unruffled leadership and courage were also inspirational during the siege by militia forces of the UNAMET compound. In addition, his diplomacy and Indonesian language skills were pivotal in successfully negotiating the safe evacuation of some two thousand people, comprising all United Nations staff from Dili and East Timorese nationals who had sought refuge with the United Nations.

 

 

 

N.Z.G.D.

To receive the New Zealand Gallantry Decoration:

 

NEW ZEALAND DEFENCE FORCE

Squadron Leader Logan Charles CUDBY (J92445), Royal New Zealand Air Force.

CITATION

Squadron Leader Cudby, between June and September 1999, served with the United Nations Mission to East Timor (UNAMET). Initially, he was posted to the Liquica region. In two separate incidents, unarmed United Nations' convoys led by Squadron Leader Cudby came under sustained fire from militia forces. On both occasions, he successfully negotiated for the convoys to continue to their destinations. By September, all remaining United Nations staff with a large number of refugees were confined to the UNAMET compound in Dili. Unarmed patrols were being sent out to monitor the situation, as well as bring back supplies from a warehouse near the port, several kilometres from the compound. Squadron Leader Cudby willingly organised and led a number of these patrols. They were subjected to considerable intimidation by rampant bands of militia and sometimes fired upon. One such patrol to the wharf area was stopped by militia, weapons were pointed at the heads of United Nations staff and rounds fired above them. Displaying considerable courage, tact and presence of mind, Squadron Leader Cudby was able to negotiate the safe return of the patrol to the UNAMET compound. His actions over a three-month period in an atmosphere of almost constant danger provided an excellent example and role model to other United Nations personnel.

 

 

Dated at Wellington this 5th day of June 2000.
