Naval Aviator is top shot

A helicopter warfare instructor from RNAS Culdrose has won a team gold medal in a recent international clay pigeon shooting competition.

Lieutenant Ed Holland took part in the 50th European Championships at Lulworth Castle in Dorset over four windy days this month. Entrants from across UK, Hungary, Czech Republic and Austria took part with the Royal Navy taking all three podium places.

Mr Holland is part of the Culdrose Clay Pigeon Shooting Club at Predannack Airfield. The group hold sessions for beginners for a small charge to cover the cost of clays and cartridges.
