London Regiment Pipe Maker's Shoot16th April 2013
The Annual Shooting Match between our Livery and our affiliated Headquarter (ANZIO) Company of the London Regiment for the SIRRAH trophy. Much was at stake for us this year as we were defending the trophy and Assistant Charles Miller had taken over the Captaincy of our shooting team from Past Master Derek Harris, who established our link with the London Regiment in the first place, some 25 years ago.
We mustered three teams of four and our new Captain fittingly managed our highest individual score. Fortunately, only the best eight counted, so my own pathetic performance didn't prevent us from holding on to the trophy. We then repaired to the bar and it was plain to see how both the Livery and the HQ Company appreciate the link between us. With everything that is expected of the Territorial Army today, it is more important than ever for us to support them.
I'm sure the Livery will look forward to making more of the link. Next year sees the anniversary of Anzio....
