Archives New Zealand holds the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) Personnel Files for all known New Zealanders who served in the First World War. This is a unique collection of records that exists across 15 different archival series.

The digitisation of these records has been the largest project of this kind Archives New Zealand has undertaken and one of the largest in New Zealand history.

Over 140,000 individual records have been digitised comprising around 4 million individual images. Due to the unique nature of the records, they were scanned by hand one image at a time.
