Richard Britton


With great sadness I have to tell you that Richard ('Dick') Britton (President of the Hereford and Worcester Rifle Association) passed away on Saturday 21st October after five years in a coma.

Richard had a most successful shooting career. As well as many appearances in the Queens 100 and winning eight Grand crosses he shot in the GB Kolapore team in 1970, and the National for England on seven occasions from 1957 to 1971. He was in a touring GB team nine times, going first in 1958 and being Captain of the team to Canada in 1994. He was a professional artist and among his many works were such Bisley scenes as 'Last Detail Stickledown' which adorn the walls of many shooters' homes and their Clubhouses.

We send our condolences to Paula and the family. 




The purpose of the Association is to promote and encourage community participation in the amateur sport of shooting with Full-bore Target Rifles
and F-class rifles within the Counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire


We foster shooting at Kingsbury Ranges (near Tamworth) via bookings by our member club WFA Bromsgrove RC who hold the range licence and we run the annual 'Birmingham Bisley' there in early June. Further details here


We also run County shoots at Bisley and a Hereford and Worcester Open Meeting, in conjunction with Gloucestershire RA in April.

Further details of these can be seen on the appropriate pages.
