Hello, I am sure he lived around mitcheldever as I think he sent pigeons on the train to London market, I started going to the game fair in the 1970s and remember eleys stand, must of missed Archie ! ! What was his highest amount of pigeons shot in a day 500 ish ? He was a very good shot, 

His record day was in the early 1960s and the pick up on the day was 550 , although they did find a few the following day, according to the book he fired around 650 cartridges , five out of six all day is very good going , so like you say he must have been a very good shot .

Archie lived in Dummer (not far from Micheldever in the grand scheme of things,) we used to take our pigeons to him on the back of a Lambretta in all weathers. He had a small shoot behind his house and another near Fleet where a mate of mine was his part time keeper (and still runs the Fleet shoot.)
