    NRA Armistice Match 10th November 2018

    This is mainly for the Brits on the forum and mods please move it if I have posted this in the wrong place.

    As the 100th anniversary of the ending of the Great War draws closer, the NRA at Bisley with some help from LERA have put together a match based on the old Classic Smellie shoot which the Army Target Shooting Club held between 1995~2003.

    In essence the match is for smellie's & Long Lee's of the Great War period and will be shot on pre 1910 School of Musketry targets.
    Lunch will be available comprising of either range stew or curry, and in the afternoon there will be a fire power demonstration with a Vickers MMG and competitors using their smellie's.


    This is a unique event and in it's own small way celebrates the best battle rifle of the 20th century!

    Harry, go the NRA website and register, there are only about 20 places left!
    You don't have to be an NRA member but you will need an SSC card.

    Cheers Mick. Tried that the other night. I got the confirmation of log-in details via e-mail yesterday and tried logging in. It just took me round and round in circles, logging in time after time after time.
    I had another two attemps but gave it up as there is a child in the house unused to the kind of language it was making me use.

    Harry you can download the form and post it in.
    The NRA have increased numbers now to 112, this is to insure we have a 100 smellies on the firing point as around 8 or 9 entries included foreign muck, i.e. Mausers, Mosin Nagants & Springfields.


    I would have liked to have see you there and chatted about the York & Lancaster Regiment, whose cap badge I believe you wore as a cadet??

    I'll try down loading the form tonight. Sounds like it could be a good match.
    Ref the York & Lanc's Regt cap badge, I was one of the last people to wear it. Shortly after I joined Junior Leaders, The badge was retired for good and all cadet units still wearing it were rebadged to Yorkshire Volunteers.

    Really an interesting opportunity and perhaps the last, to have a few hundred SMLEs in reasonably competent hands firing rapid en masse. Should be simultaneously filmed at the firing point, and at the butts where the impact of that volume of fire can be seen.

    Condé Canal 1914 and all that.

    Slightly OT, and don't know about others, but I find it really annoying to see a bunch of wankers posing as the BEF in silly and unrealistic firing positions and the photos labelled as original.

    Do a search for "Condé Canal 1914" and this tripe pops up at the head of the image results. You'll love the chap in specs and the fellow with the large white cuffs showing under his tunic, as for firing past each other's ears, it's just a pity they didn't!
