NEW ZEALAND MOUNTED RIFLES
The Memorial Troops of the NZMRA

Memorial Troopers of the NZMRA
Shaun Maloney the NZMRA Parades Officer presents an immaculate display of trooper and horse at the 2006 Armistice Day Parade in Cambridge. The Association is striving to represent the NZMR Brigade that served with distinction during the Middle East conflicts of World War One in two important directions.
First the establishment of "Memorial Troops" to maintain and keep for future generations the uniforms, equipment and camaraderie of our ANZAC mounted riflemen. Second to preserve the history of the Brigade by keeping and preserving the records such as letters, reports, photographs and memorabilia of the troops that served in Gallipoli, Sinai and Palestine over ninety years ago.

Dedicated people across New Zealand are strong supporters of the Memorial Troopers who gather for the love of the military horse and to celebrate the character and determination of our forefathers in World War One during the conflict in the Middle East.
It is the NZMRA's dream to gather together interested groups across the country in the hope that we will be able to have a fully detailed team of mounted horsemen to celebrate the Centenary of the ANZAC day in 2015.
