Royal New Zealand Navy Warrant Officer of the Navy

Unread postby dcfowler1 » Fri Apr 02, 2004 7:46 am

I have noted that, like the Royal Australian Navy, that the Royal New Zealand Navy has adopted a rank of "Warrant Officer of the Navy".

Does anyone know what the insignia is?

Also, does the New Zealand Army have a Regimental Sergeant Major of the Army? Does the RNZAF have a Warrant Officer of the Air Force?

thanks,

Dave

Here are the badges of both commissioned and non-commissioned rank in the New Zealand Army :arrow:

As you see there is no rank of Regimental Sergeant Major of the New Zealand Army at present. I presume they are going to introduce this rank as they have introduced Warrant Officer of the Navy rank earlier. The insignia will be probably following those Australian Army ones,
i.e.: upper sleeve, national coat of arms in some kind of wreath etc.

New Zealand does have a Sergeant Major of the army. From memory, the rank was instituted in 1976 and the badge is similar to that of Australia - i.e. the NZ arms inside a wreath.

I believe you but as you see :arrow:

the New Zealand Army is just keeping this rank in secret :wink: as there is no rank of Regimental Sergeant Major of the New Zealand Army on their official page.

On a slightly different track..... does the Governor General of New Zealand have a military rank badge in his/her capacity as commander in chief, like the GG's in Canada and Australia do?

dcfowler1,

Out of curiosity, what is the rank badge of Canada's GG? I have never seen it.

IIRC, just the Canadian COA in gold on a shoulder board...similar to Australia's.
