  • Rank for Kiwi soldiers in 1NZATTV was variable consistent with the environment. We had our New Zealand rank, we dealt a lot with US Army and we also were primarily instructors for ARVN (South Vietnam Army). Accordingly we wore a variety of distinguishing rank insignia, often at the same time, Bob Lowe was a New Zealand Sgt with acting rank of WOII, a US E7 or Sgt First Class and Vietnamese Trung Uy or First Lieutenant. Note the collar insignia that looks like two flowers.

  • ORs were promoted to Acting WOII during their posting to 1NZATTV primarily to gain access to US facilities like Sgt/WO messes and to gain priorities otherwise not available to more junior ranks. The paper-war reflects what happened on army records and so on but they were not paid accordingly.
