Naval street style

Whaddya know. I chanced across my cousin Stephen Overton in full gear the other day. I have known Stephen as a T-shirt & jeans guy, so I was quite blown away. Very crisp!

The medals that Stephen is wearing going from the left to the right are:

New Zealand Operational Service Medal for a deployment to the Solomon Islands in 2000 (black and white striped).

New Zealand General Service Medal for service in the Persian Gulf in 2008 both onboard HMNZS Te Mana. (blue, green, red, black stripes).

New Zealand Defence Medal to recognise attested military service since 3 September 1945 (the one hanging loosely).
