History

The present OL Rifle Club was formed in 1962 by the founder Col HJ Thompson, whose son Peter is still an active shooting member. However before that time, from 1927 onwards (excepting the war years), a team of OLs used to shoot in the Public Schools Veterans match every year at Bisley, and also take part in matches against SLC and some other teams such as the Old Felstedians. Of particular note was the Veterans match of 1930 when, according to the archives, the OL team won this national competition, scoring 242 out of 250 - with about 100 teams taking part. But these days, with more accurate ammunition, the winning scores tend to be much higher, and 242 would definitely not do the trick!
