2ND V. B. CHESHIRE REGIMENT. SHOOTING AT SEALAND. The annual shooting competition in connes- tion with this corps took place at the Range, Sealand, on Wednesday, under circumstances altogether favourable. When shooting com- menced, early in the morning, there was scarcely a breath of wind moving, but when the marks- men in the Gold Medal competition assembled at the 600 yards range a nasty fish-tail wind had got up, and this was the cause of the men fall- ing away at that range, after having shot well in the majority of instances at the shorter distances. The entries in the different compe- titions were in excess of those of last year, and the general shooting much better, although the gold medal then was won with 95 points, whereas now 92 was the highest. The reverse of this happened in the 'Ladies' Competition,' for while 61 captured the first prize last year, on this occasion there were no fewer than a dozen scores above that number. In the afternoon rain came down at intervals, but this did not delay the firing. It was a matter for regret that there was such a dearth of officers present, Captain Evans and Major Woolley being the only two who were in attendance. The adjutant visited the range in tha afternoon, but did not take part in the proceedings. The gold medal, which is looked upon as the blue ribbon of the meeting, was won by Arm.- Sergt. Parry, with a total of 92 points, Sergt. Red being second with 90, and Corpl. Simcock third with 89. This is the seventh time Sergt. Parry has won the gold medal, the first time he carried it off being twenty-five years ago. Captain Evans bad charge of the arrangements, and he was asoisted by Quartermaster-Sergeant Jones, and seven sergeants of the Depot Regi- ment, who kept the register, while Sergeant- Major Thomas and Sergeant-Instructor McGarvie had charge of the office work. Appended are the results:— GOLD MEDAL COMPETITION. 200. 500. 600. T'l. Arm.-Sgt. C. J. Parry, gold medal, badge, and £6 33.31.28 92 Sgt. A. J. Red, £ 4 29.32.29 90 Cpl. J. H.
