Hi Chris, you'll find a higher resolution copy of the painting on Archives NZ's War Art website. If you need a larger copy than the one available online I suggest you contact Archives NZ. Information about obtaining NZDF service records can be found here. Good luck with your search. Regards, Gareth

The breakout at Minqar Qa'im

Two questions.
1.Is it possible to obtain a high resolution copy of this image suitable for framing?
2.My grandfather was a driver with 2 NZEF RMT Service # 65061.

I'm wanting to find out more about his service history,(he passed away approx 20 years ago while I was living in Australia and I have been unable to find a copy of his death certificate). Is there anywhere online I can find out or do I have to go to the NZ Army to request a copy of his service record.

I'm particularly interested in whether he was at the Break out and the vehicles he may driven through his service.
