2 Flight are Top Guns

The Sqn held its annual L98 Inter Flight Shoot between the 3 main Flights  on Sunday 21 February. Fired at Pirbright Ranges the initial heavy rain fortuitiously ceased before shooting commenced and allowed a pleasant shoot. Each Flight provided 6 shooters and 4 cadets to man the targets in the Butts. In total, 4 separate practises were fired, a deliberate shoot at 300m, a rapid shootat 200m, a snap shoot at 200m and a Fire with Movement Shoot from 300m to 200m  to 100m.

Using the new L98A2 rifle the shoot ran smoothly and enabled cadets to concentrate on the principles of marksmanship at the various distances. During the day OC London Wing, Wg Cdr Sylvia Silver visited and spoke to the cadets as they waited to fire. The shoot was won by 2 Flt for the second year running, beating 1 Flt and 3 Flt, with a crushing score of 458 to the second place 278. The photos show thwe cadets on the range and the victorious 2 Flt Team with their butt party.
