Last weekend members of the Oxfordshire (The Rifles) Battalion ACF competed in the Oxford University indoor archery tournament. This was the last tournament of the indoor season. All members of the battalion shot well.
Cpl M Norwood was first in the Junior Ladies Barebow with another solid 301/600. Corporal R Whiting was first in the Junior Gents Compound, miles ahead of the next archer, with a score of 515/600. Adult Under Officer Mundy was second in the Novice Ladies Recurve and shot a new personal best. Sergeant K Herbert was third in the Novice Gents Recurve, in his first competition, with a score of 429/600. Colour Sergeant J Royal was second in the gents compound with 551/600. The cadets like the OUIT because you get chocolate instead of trophies!
