CHESTER ART*LLERYME^N AT^EliAND" The thirty-seventh annual carbine prize meet- ing of the headquarter battery and companies of the 1st Cheshire and Carnarvonshire Volun- teer Artillery was held at Sealand on Monday Ibe programme had been thoroughly revised since last year, the entrance fees having been reduced, and the competitions rendered much more attractive generally, with the result that there was a large increase in the number of marksmen who put in an appearance at the range. The day was an ideal one. When shooting commenced, about half-past nine, the sun shone brilliantly, and throughout the day there was hardly a cloud overhead or a breath of wind. Under such favourable circumstances it was Dot to be wondered at that some very ereditable scores were registered. Quarter- master Sergeant Gillham, of No. I Battery, succeeded in winning the silver cnaiienge cup for the best aggregate, making the highest scores both in the Mayor's and Sheriff's competitions, and coming only one point behind Gunner Reynolds in the Drill Handicap. Owing to the length of the competitions, part of the programme had to be curtailed, as the light began to fail. The officers present during the day were Col. H. T. Brown, Major Fountain, Captain Walker (adjutant), Captains R. Stewart Wood, Hall, and Bonnalie, Lieutenant Jayne, and Lieutenant-Surgeon Wright. There was but a small attendance of civilians, and it is a matter for surprise and regret that so few members of the general public avail themselves of the opportunity of spending a pleasant after- noon, and also of encouraging the local volun- teers by their presence. Sergt.-Major Brown I and Sergt. Fisher acted as umpires, and the statistical department was in charge of Co,-Sergeant-Major Browne and Sergeant-Major Gerrard. Details of the scoring are appended:- DRILL HANDICAP. Open to qualified members, paints being allowed for attendance at drill. Five shots at 200, 300, and 400 yards each. | Points in -d Score alld.
