Lt Col Andrew Chambers RLC, Commanding Officer, 152 (North Irish) Regiment RLC, said: “I cannot tell you how delighted I am with this performance.

This is the first year that I have not actually shot myself – this gave me the opportunity to help coach the younger soldiers with Sgt (JP) Penrose – I have enjoyed watching them all develop.

I’m indebted to Sgt (JP) Penrose who I believe is the best Shooting Coach in the Army Reserve, his dedication and patience has paid huge dividends for the Regiment.”

In addition to this fabulous achievement by 152 Regt in the competition this year, The RLC should be particularly proud of the performance of its reserve shots.

Currently, out of the Top 50 Shots in the Army Reserve, 21 are from The RLC (42%).
