"Diamond Geezer" gets OFRC Jubilee Medal

Truly a “Diamond Geezer”, we have all come to rely on Neil who is always the willing soldier in helping his colleagues in every small way, from carrying the club equipment and rifles, to collecting the ammunition, or offering the advice of experience to our youngest shooter – aged 18, just as he was in 1952. As a volunteer, all tasks are completed with a smile and equal enthusiasm.


In July 2012, at the age of 78, Neil celebrated his 60th year shooting with the OFs and, at the OFRC AGM on 12th July, he was presented with an OFRC Jubilee Medal to commemorate this magnificent achievement.
