TERRITORIAL TRAINING. . » — — _ DRILL ON THE SCREEN. An innovation which promises - to be Of exceptional, value in training .of. Territorials and senior cadets has" been produced by Lieutenant-Colonel Duigan, G. 5.0.. of district headquarters, Auckland. This takes the. form of the moving picture, by means of which various phases of Territorial training are illustrated. It is considered that the visualising of the work by the medium of the screen will give the members of the forces a better understanding of the elementary, principles necessary to thorough training. A great many, things have been adapted to film' production, and among the most recent is the art of warfare. There seems to bo no avenue restricted to the screen, and as a factor in Territorial and senior cadet training it has an exceptional value, especially in country districts, jwhere. for obvious reasons, it is impossible to gather large numbers of men together. Films may be lent to different group commanders in these districts, and thus the men to whom they are screened will havo the distinct advantage of being able to witness large and ! maior operations.

The basic idea is to get away from the dull monotony of continuous drill — the "left turn, right turn, right-about turn, form-fours," and so on, which, it is considered, fails to create the proper impression on the- youthful mind, in that, being a purely mechanical operation, little enthusiasm is shown. One of the greatest incentives to an improved interest in training is the fact that the Territorials or senior cadets are the actors in the mimic warfare, or training, and it is believed that by this means the spirit of competition will he created among the various units, and { so make for efficiency. On certain drill nights the men in training will be given an illustrated lecture, the picture portion of which .will have been acted by some of their number. The setting of the picture! will be a piece of ground on which the training takes place, and after tho illustrations^:, have been shown sufficiently often, the men will be taken to the ground and be required to re-enact tho views shown on the screen. The first series, comprising three films, were, screened at the Lyric Theatre recently, when, in addition to several members of the district staff. there were present 400 members of the coast defence infantry. The films wove remarkable in many respects, especially in that the views dealt with the theory of warfare as contained in the mostrecent text-books, and borne out by nractice in the war with Germany. The first, scenes were a series of diagrams moved as'bodies of men. Subsequently the same movements were shown, being carried out by bodies of troops. Gradually, the idea was developed until the completion of the manoeuvres. The film*, which were photographed in Auckland, are really a wonderful creation, showing; that a- groat deal of care and thought have been exercised with a. view to the effective training of TerritoriaK In future production it is not intended to attempt anything elaborate, but to interpolate; all the elementary principles necessary to thorough training.' So' far, the results havo been sufficiently srood to ensitre the pucceps r»f film training, and it m hoped that in thf> rtnnr future- > film training librnrv "'ill be estnblishpd for the use of, t-ho whole of the New Zealand defo-iVce'' forcof;! the films tn-bf un^T th" dhectioTi ;W control of the New Zealand General Staff. .
