Line infantry vs. Rifles[edit]

According to an old version of the official Regimental website, Privates were (are?) known as Riflemen. Make what you will of this. 202.89.153.10 10:51, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

This uses the word "rifleman" to mean the standard profession of infantry, as opposed to an infantry specialist - in this instance, rifleman means the same as "gunner" would in the artillery. It does not mean that the RNZIR is a regiment of rifles. Hammersfan 21/02/07, 17.35 GMT

Marhc[edit]

Does this regiment have any marches? 202.89.155.94 03:58, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Mech vs Motorised[edit]

The term mechanised refers to a force that uses tracked vehicles for mobility. Within the NZDF there are no tracked vehicles within service, so the reference to one battalion being mechanised is incorrect. 203.109.225.42 11:38, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
