  • "Bisley. Not sure if it is Bisley in Gloucestershire or Surrey" - the location in this instance will be the shooting ranges at Bisley, Surrey.

    What we're seeing here is the tradition of the winner of The King's Prize at Bisley being carried away from the ranges in the Bisley Chair. (A similar scene can be seen in clip 348.20, entitled "The King's Prize - Bisley").

    Sadly I can't help with the name of the man in the chair, nor the year of the ceremony.
