My great old fishing and shooting mate John Humphreys used to tell wonderful tales about days with The Major.

Terrible  shame that they have both left us. 

I bet knowing Country Gun was amazing !


I grew up reading him and Colin Willock 


I recently asked shooting times to re-run from the beginning all their articles !


Happy happy days

I met him once as a youngster. He was a friendly and kindly chap who was clearly interested in having a chat with us. I think his wife brought us over to talk to him. Remember discussing tactics for shooting sitting pigeons out of cherry trees with an airgun with him 😊

Think that was the heyday of the shooting times with many high quality writers and countrymen.
