In 1957, at the age of 18, Fraser Boyd joined the Royal New Zealand Air Force as aFraser_Boyd photographer. After 18 years and many fascinating experiences, he transferred to the Management Services Branch of the NZ Defence Force (NZDF), where he served in numerous capacities for the next 36 years, in uniform and later as a civilian. His final job before retirement was to manage the treaties and arrangements that the NZDF has with other defence forces around the world.
