  • Description

    Sergeant Fulton is the twice winner of the "King's Prize" for rifle shooting.

    C/U of Sgt. Fulton stroking his pet dog "Sailor". His young daughter sits beside him looking rather grumpy. Fulton gives the dog a biscuit. L/S of the family group. Mother, father, two children (one of each) and the family dog - a black Labrador. They are sitting in the garden having afternoon tea. Fulton's daughter stands by a table loaded down with shooting trophies. She holds one of the trophies then puts it on the table. L/S of Fulton, his son and a colleague walking towards the camera laden down with shooting equipment. C/U of Fulton lying on the ground taking aim. His son sits behind him. He fires the gun and his son jumps and puts his fingers in his ears! Shot from further away of Fulton taking aim, the dog sits beside him.

    "Sailor" runs off to collect the target which Fulton has been shooting at, the dog grabs it in his mouth and brings it back to his master. Fulton pats the dog. Fulton trains his son to shoot and the boy "is determined to carry on the family tradition at the great Bisley meeting." C/U of the boy taking aim with his father watching his technique. Fulton's father before him won what was then the Queen's Prize. We see his father taking aim, he uses the same "Martini Henry" rifle as when he won the prize. Shots of a match between the North London and City rifle clubs. L/S group of men lying on the ground taking aim. Other men spectate. Closer shots of some of the men
