PEMBROKE YEOMANRY CAVALRY. The annual carbine prize shooting of the county Regiment of Yeomanry was held at the Government ranges, Penally, on Wednesday and Thursday, under the presidency of the popular commandant, Colonel M. J. Saurin. There was a large attend- ance of troopers from all parts of the county. Tents were pitched for the use of the executive, and creature comforts were provided in the large wooden building connected with the military ranges on the downs, Mr J. Booth catering satis- factorily. The marking in the mantlets at the butts was carried out by a party of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry; Wimbledon targets and scoring. The details of arrangement were well carried out under the immediate supervision of the adjutant, Captain R. H. Hardy, King's Dragoon Guards, ably assisted by Troop Serjeants-major Beet, Proctor, and Carter, Sergeant-major Holt, late of the 11th Hussars, officiating as Secretary. The meeting was a most. successful and pleasant one. The officers present were Colonel Saurin, Lieutenant-colonel H. Leach, Major C. Mathias, and, as we have already intimated, Captain Hardy. The weather was fairly fine, but the wind on both days blew fitfully athwart the ranges, by no means conducive to good shooting. The weapon used was the Martini-Henri cavalry carbine. The events were as follow:— The Regimental Challenge Cup, presented by J. A. James, Esq., late Lieut. P.Y.C., value jE30, with £10 added.
