The history of the Waikato Mounted Rifles. The 4th (Waikato) Mounted Rifles was formed on March 17, 1911. They were mobilized during the Great War and formed part of the Auckland Mounted Rifle Regiment, and served in the Middle Eastern theatre of World War I and first saw action during the Battle of Gallipoli. As a part of the larger New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade (of the Anzac Mounted Division) they went on to serve in the Sinai and Palestine Campaign.
