The three lady members of Pinchbeck Rifle Club pictured above had secured the highest number of marks of the previous season.

The crack shots – Mrs Inkley, Mrs Parkinson and Mrs Hooks – had won the National Rifle Association’s First Class Target competition.

They had also received certificates of the National Roll of Marksmen and league medals in the Lincoln County Rifle Association.

In addition, Mrs Hooks had also secured the best League average, winning a silver medal awarded by the Lincoln County Rifle Association.

Club secretary Mr P N H Hooks had been given a place in a team of 20 to represent Lincolnshire in the imminent competition for Queen Alexandra’s Cup.
