Hi Roscoe – the rank shown is taken from army pay records and, as far as we are able to establish, is the substantive rank at the time of deployment to Vietnam. The NZ Army allowed a number of NCO's and Officers to wear "acting rank" to allow them parity in status with their US or Australian peers – even though they may not have qualified for that rank by the regulations of the time.
