The Volunteers.

The second competition between members of the D (Evesham) Company of Volunteers took place at the Wickhamford range on Saturday last. The weather, although dry, was bad from a “shootist’s point of view, the wind and light being very changeable, and at times the mirage was most troublesome. The scores were very low, the following being the best:

                                          200yds.    500yds.  600yds.   Total.
Captain Haynes…………..   27     …     31     …     26    ….   84
Private F.W. Cook……….   22     …     30     …    29    ….   81
Lieutenant Prance……….. 28     …     25     …    24     ….   77
Private Good……………      26     …     14     …     25     ….   75
Private Allard…………..     29     …     23     …     19     ….    71

It is thought that the range was probably at Whitfurrows.
