The Whanganui Regional Museum has been working to the beat of the drum recently, courtesy of the New Zealand Army.  The army has been carrying out military exercises and training in the region over the last week, culminating in a series of marching drills and band practices on the forecourt in front of the Museum building.


As well as this, the troupe have been undertaking manoeuvres with Light Armoured Vehicles and weapons, with blank firing happening on occasion.  A “beat-the-retreat” ceremony will be taking place today (September 16th) at 4pm to round out the week of exercises and the public are welcome to attend and view the precision.
