Wellington Rifles Sevice Rifle and Living History Unit (Inc) is a charitable organisation made up of people interested in preserving New Zealands Military history. We are mainly collectors and shooters and we were concerned the KIWI Vietnam story was often overlooked. As a result we have promoted rememberance of this era , Korea, Malaya and Borneo thru public displays of equipment and weapons and on occasion living history displays including "Armistice Day" at Cambridge.
We remain embarrased and ashamed of the way Vietnam Veterans were treated and will continue to publicaly promote our view that every serviceman that ever fought in a New Zealand uniform deserves the same honour and respect, and bears no responsibility for the politics behind any of the conflicts New Zealand has been involved with.
