ARMY OPERATIONAL SHOOTING COMPETITION, BISLEY 2018

Jun 21, 2018

Regimental Shooting has taken huge leap forward this year, seeing all Regular and Reserve Battalions qualifying through their Divisions for a place on the Army Operational Shooting Competition AOSC, Bisley.  Competition at this year's Regular AOSC has been more intense than ever, with greater participation resulting in an even higher standard required to break into the Army top 100.  Despite this 13 Riflemen has achieved this accolade and can now wear their Army 100 badges with pride.
