Roland Frederick Herbert Green (29 October 1885 – 27 April 1947) was an Australian politician. He attended Sydney Boys High School  and served in the 6th Battalion AIF in the First World War, until losing a leg at the Battle of Menin Road in Belgium, in September 1917.
To general surprise, Green won the House of Representatives seat of Richmond for the Country Party at the December 1922 election, defeating the sitting member and government minister Walter Massy-Greene. Green used an ingenious punning campaign slogan: “Vote for the Green without an E” (i.e. “a knee”). Lack of an E in his name also gave him precedence on the ballot paper over Massy-Greene (who had not adopted a hyphenated surname at that time).
