The Peninsula Naval Artillery, under the command of Captain J. White, go into camp nt Tahuna Park to-morrow for a week's gun drill at the central and St. Clair batteries. The men will drill in the mornings and evenings before and after work. The men will be instructed in army signalling, shot and shell practice with the 6 inch gnns, and drill with the Nordenfeldt guns. White Island will probably bo the target for the shot and shell practice. No doubt a number of people will turn out to see if accurate shooting is made.
