GrenPen Posted 21 February , 2018 Share Posted 21 February , 2018 I've taken a look at the service record of a New Zealander who was in the Boer War, and duly joined the New Zealand Permanent Force, seeing Home Service duty during WW1 with the Examination Service, stationed in Wellington, as I understand it. He enlisted as a Probationary Sapper, and then progressed to the rank of 2nd Class Sapper. He was remustered as a Private in the General Duties Branch, NZ Permanent Force. The rank of 2nd Class Gunner appears to have existed at the same time, too, according to some search results from Archway. Did these ranks continue into WW1 as well? The nearest I had come across was Second Corporal, but the above is lower than the aforementioned rank. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
