Welsh Regiment held on Wednesday last, at Grangetown, theiraunun-l prize meeting-, whith was ithe best attended since the formation of the corps, more than half the company being present. The commanding- officer, Captain. p Coleman, and Lieut. Simpsoa, were also present. A (feature of the meeting was also the remarkably clever ^hooting of Private Cobbledick who only joined the ranks last year. A novel competition was that with twelvers. This form of shooting is not properly recognised by the service, but the Instructor-Selgt. zn Lobban-wbo was Ireland's crack shot for three years, and who also held the Army championship ia 18.92, has very wisely introduced it locally. Appended are the principal scores :— GENERAL COlPETITION. I 200 yards t 500 yards i "g -3 KANE AND NAME. o o So 123456 7 H 1234567 Private Cobbledick 5445434 29 5534552 29 58 Sergt.
