The military was descended from the militias that followed the settlement of New Zealand by the British. The militias had to deal with the Maori warrior tribes, as well as supporting the British presence there. Their first foray into global conflict came with [[SecondBoerWar the Boer War]]. They were [[UsefulNotes/AussiesWithArtillery the other half]] of the ANZAC name in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, and they also served in [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII the Second War]]. You may see them wearing the iconic [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campaign_hat "lemon squeezer" hat]], which is still used today on ceremonial occasions. A battalion was deployed during UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar as the only force to be fully 'professional' - i.e. entirely made up of professional soldiers, with no conscripts or volunteers in their numbers.
