The Branch competition season commenced on 8 April at Bisley. The match was the Volunteer Trophy, for military match rifles, and fired with open sight. 15 shots at 600 yards.
Shooters on the first detail only had to contend with a gloomy sky and lingering smoke in the generally calm conditions. What wind there was wasn’t enough to blow the already rain soaked wind flags around much. The second detail was much the same conditions, but with the addition of rain! Despite shooting in the miserable conditions of the second detail, John Whittaker had a tremendous shoot and convincing win.
