Battles and Engagements involving the 65th in New Zealand

Here is a list I have compiled of battles and engagements involving some personnel of the regiment. I have listed all officers reported to have been there. There are sure to still be some who were not listed in the reports.

Note: This is not a definitive Order of Battle of all who fought there, only the names of the 65th Regiment involvement.

I will soon be adding more details as I find them.
