Notes: The 16th Pack Howitzer Battery, Christchurch, having completed their annual training, carried out a successful shoot with their new guns on Mount Torlesse Station, in the Kowai Valley. Seventy-two rounds were fired, and good practice was made with the howitzers, which were the first of their type to be used in the Dominion. An interested onlooker was Sir Edward Chaytor, G.O.C. the New Zealand Military Forces, who was flown from Christchurch in a Bristol Fighter, accompanied by an Avro plane. The picture shows a howitzer at full recoil immediately after firing.
