New Zealand and Australian soldiers working on mustard gas stocks in Iraq

After the 1991 ceasefire in the war that followed Iraq’s occupation of Kuwait, the United Nations supervised the location and disposal of Iraq's chemical weapons and long-range missiles. New Zealand contributed medical and military personnel to the mission. Sergeant Wayne Evans (right) is shown here with an Australian soldier. They stand amidst 155-millimetre artillery shells filled with mustard gas in Al Muthanna province, southern Iraq.
