We started on Saturday, with a nice steady fifty bird bag. Oh and one fox! That'll teach the thieving b'tard! It was a perfect day - we had three new guns, all who shot extremely well unlike the rest of us. The weather was nice and my chicken sandwiches delicious as was the Arkells 3B brought by an ex-gunner officer who shoots with us. In fact out of sixteen guns we now have two ex-Gunners, two Scottish infantry, two Int corps and one ex-Stafford. A suitable proportion of the population I feel! Finally we had a high turnout at the pub on the hill;where they serve Butcombe and Doom Bar, 6X and Stowford to refresh thirsty guns, beaters and pickers up. Windsor did two blind retrieves in super-quick style. I got three birds with five shots. Then home for a curry and NZ getting gubbed by Johnny Frenchman...it really does not get any better than that.
