Dear Ministerial Services,

I thank Commodore Smith for the timely response to my request; however, I note that there is no notation within NZDIA's 2017 event prospectus that advises the images contained within have been printed with the permission of NZDF. As Commodore Smith has advised that the prospectus was approved prior to being published, would you be so kind as to inquire and then advise me what rank within the NZDF the prospectus was considered and ultimately approved?

Yours sincerely,
