24 pounder cannon


Two cannon rolled into a swamp at The Halfway (Glenside) about 160 years ago, were recovered, then became lost in the mists of time. Through research stemming from Johnsonville resident's oral history memories the mists have now parted to reveal the cannons being found safe and sound at Trentham Military Camp.

Track the journey of these cannons from England to New Zealand, from Glenside to Gear Homestead and finally to Trentham Military Camp.
