The book's content goes far beyond that of a basic club history. The author, the redoubtable Max Earnshaw, has woven into the story detailed research not only of the club's characters and events over the preceding century, but also information relating to many other aspects. The rifles and equipment in use through the years have been recorded faithfully. Many of these aspects come alive by virtue of the quality and number of photographs carefully compiled during several years of research. Much of that research has been done by Max and a small team of senior club members who are lay military and shooting historians in their own right.

This book will hold the attention of any person with an interest in historic rifle shooting ( and perhaps pistol too). Many of those characters to whom the book refers either are, or have been in their own time, of both national and international reknown. Here is an opportunity to read about fascinating aspects of their shooting careers hitherto unrecorded.

A considerable debt of thanks is owed to all those who assisted with the provision of material for, and the production of, this valuable record. These thanks must go not only to the production team, but also to friends and relatives of the those for whom this book provides a permanent memorial.
