Armistice Centenary Match – Entries Now Open

General News

Published on:


The Armistice Commemoration Match will broadly follow the practices used during the heyday of the SMLE rifle with the emphasis on a friendly competition shot ‘In the Spirit of the Original’.
Targets are largely those of the era and all shooting will be at a single distance – 200 yds – from the prone or kneeling position, including one Practice with fixed bayonets.
Spare bayonets will be available on the day and will be checked for correct fitting before firing.

There will be a short Remembrance Service before the start of the competition, and to mark the occasion, special permission has been granted to fire a Vickers M/G.  This will be conducted at the end of the competition in two details, with competitors either shooting alongside or watching the demonstration.

Tea/coffee and bacon butties will be available from 07.30 and a choice of Maconochie stew or curry at lunch time.  Please tick the appropriate boxes on the entry form as required.

Those not in possession of an SMLE can use one supplied by LERA / NRA for a special price of £12 a day on a shared basis, and purchase ammunition – 66 rounds of S&B 180gr for £44.00 – upon production of their NRA membership and SCC. Note: rifles and ammunition will be issued on range. The rifles will be zeroed for 200 yds and no further sight adjustments will be permitted.

We expect some media coverage of the event and encourage those with British uniforms of WW1 to wear them on the day.

All competitors will receive a special RBL Centenary Mug.
