We can do it! (1942) shows a factory (probably the General Motors plant at Lower Hutt) where Universal (Bren) gun carriers were made during the Second World War.
This 1942 newsreel talks about how many are being made for New Zealand defences and how it is making New Zealand ready for any potential enemy invasion.
