When did privates in the Rifle Brigade officially become Riflemen?

Probably about 1922, when (for example) Privates in Line Cavalry regiments became Troopers.

Thanks. Somehow I thought that was the correct period but got confused by TNA records for WW1 which often show rank as rifleman rather than private.

There have been several discussions about this in the past, so it could be worth searching the Forum.
