This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 6 February, 1959. "These third form pupils at the Boys' High School are having their first taste of army life in the annual barracks week at the school. With instructors from the permanent staff of the Territorial Force and the Air Force, all boys, almost without exception, are trained in the use of rifles and drilled with marching and shooting. The barracks course stretches over five school days, with occasional travelling to Linton Camp for shooting practice on the Army range."
