Official Guide to the Government Court: N.Z. Centennial Exhibition

Army Department

Army Department

A feature of this display is a modern field gun with mounting, and in sharp contrast are the captured guns from the German Army of 1914-18. Folding-boat equipment, miniature trestles, pontoons and box girders represent the Engineering side of Army activities.

A completely-equipped Gas Chamber is available to demonstrate the use of the modern gas helmet, while a movie projector gives highlights of Army life.

One important attraction is the new Bren Gun on an Anti-Aircraft Mounting, thus giving the public the opportunity of examining this remarkable new weapon at close quarters.

Regimental badges and medals are shown on display-stands and fully-dressed life-sized models demonstrate the various types of uniform now being worn.

Miniature model equipment rounds off a most comprehensive display, which is sure to attract widespread interest.

Attendants are in full-dress blue and are available to answer any questions from young and old alike. The Army Stand is part of a Combined Services display representing the Navy, Army and Air Forces.
