Mayor Grant Smith inspects NZ Army soldiers as part of the Charter Parade through The Square in December 2016.

In 1956 Linton Military Camp was given the Freedom of the Borough which allowed them the privilege to ‘march on ceremonial occasions with bayonets fixed, colours flying, drums beating and bands playing through the streets of the city.’ This was the first time the Freedom of the Borough had been bestowed upon a military camp in New Zealand. The honour was normally reserved for a regimental unit.
