The New Zealand Army Reserve, formally known as the Territorial Force (TF) is the part-time component of New Zealand’s Army and has played a significant role throughout New Zealand’s history and remains relevant today. The Army Reserve contributes internationally on operational deployments around the world and nationally to civil defence during natural disasters.
The exhibition contains 40 photographs that covers the New Zealand Army Reserve training course (RTF165) late 2020 – early 2021. The photographs cover classroom work, life in the barracks, outdoor lessons/training in the field, and parade practice/graduation; and continues NAM’s commitment to NZ Army contemporary exhibitions.
The exhibition will also include a short history of the origins of the New Zealand Territorial Force and selected artefacts from NAM’s collection.
