This image was not published in The Manawatu Evening Standard, taken on 21 January, 1964. "During the jousting tournament for the "wooden spoon" at the Carnival of the Lake, between Army and the "Kouncil Knights" disaster overtook the City Council crew. Coming in to attack, they turned broadside on and were dealt a mortal blow by Army. A thunderflash, thrown into the water, exploded under the keel and blew a hole in the plates. looking like a submarine diving, the gondola sank in a dignified dive, leaving the crew floundering in the lake. Navy divers and the Army soon salvaged the stricken vessel." See Also: 2017N_2017-20_018340, 2017N_2017-20_018341, 2017N_2017-20_018342, 2017N_2017-20_018343
