Do you know what the club is called? In the last month or so I've managed to pick a few more odds and ends up, really getting the bug for it now. 

Thanks. 

The one that Hanky quotes below.

The Setter cases were not made by Steve Smith, The Setter is made by Bagnal & Kirkwood of Newcastle, previously known as W R Pape.

Does anyone have any information on and R. Rous of beyton, Suffolk? 

All I can find is a tiny bit online referring to it as 'The peoples mart' and 'cycle depot' and a small section in a book i have, and according to my old man he's dad used to work there. 

They were supposed to have cartridges with their name printed on the tube, has anyone seen one by chance? 

Thanks all

Rous I believe was an ironmonger. The firm sold cartridges under the name "Pheasant" (post 1925).

Ok, I am giving away free to good homes, 3 X 12g cartridges to separate collectors at one of the replacement Catton rifle shoots probably at Royle Far?.

They are head stamped KENT. Plastic cases, the lettering as is usual fading. 67.5mm , No 5 shot, Both imperial and decimal shot weights 1 1/8 oz and 32 g.

Marked Rugeley Guns and Tackle. Staffordshire. From the Ray Probert era. Ray cremated 2014 and his ashes made into clay pigeons and blown in the wind.

Anyone? You need to show the relevant cert.

First come to preserve a bit of history!

 

PS, Flyboy1950, I have one for you
