Arthur Gannon's Peace Carriers - celebrating the end of the war

Arthur Gannon’s Peace Carriers wore one of the features of the recent Wellington Peace Celebrations procession. They made a fine display, comprising nine vehicles drawn by-twenty horses, all elaborately decorated, and from one of the lorries the above typical bulldog, robed in a Union Jack gazed intently down on the crowds. In addition to the above display Arthur Gannon who is a returned lieutenant of the Maori Pioneers N.Z.E.F., placed a number of Lorries and expresses at the free disposal of the Salvation Army, etc

Arthur 'Wata' Gannon - Letter 2 from Sling Camp

"Darling I do miss you both. How grand it will be when all this is over, but sweetheart the end is not in sight yet: You say, "you hope I will remain in Sling for some time" up to the present your wish is gratified - I am still on the Staff - I have a good position. When I receive orders to go "over-seas" I will cable you - so don't be anxious about me."
