Five Kiwi soldiers are facing drugs charges over alleged offending while on operation in Fiji, the Defence Force has confirmed.

The incident involved the alleged use of an unknown substance by five personnel while serving on the HMNZS Canterbury in March.

The charges will be dealt with at the summary trial level by the accuseds' commanding officers in the coming weeks, a spokeswoman says.

An investigation into one sailor is on-going, she said.
