Peacekeeping in former Yugoslavia: checkpoint duty

As part of their work in Bosnia, in former Yugoslavia, New Zealand troops operated checkpoints and conducted patrols in areas where confrontations were occurring. In some cases these were joint operations with Bosnian Croat or Bosnia-Herzegovina units. At other times the New Zealand contingent worked with other UN-affiliated units including British, Canadian and Dutch units.
