We are very sorry to inform you that Michael Davis has passed away.
Michael was a stalwart of our match rifle fraternity, Vice President of the English Eight Club, Co President of the Stickledown Club among other appointments and gave huge support to our sport which he enjoyed since Oxford.
He took great interest in the results and achievements of match rifle teams, only recently arranging champagne for the GB Woomera team following their victory in Tasmania.
His lively sense of humour will be missed, as will the familiar sight of him with Green Jim, his pet parrot, perched on his shoulder and with his fireman?s helmet on, setting light to the rocket signalling commencement of proceedings on Stickledown day.
