permitted to "coach" or "spot" for each other, and to use
binoculars or telescopes for that purpose, provided their doing
so does not delay or impede the shooting. The duly recognized Captain, Adjutant or Coach of a team, although not

repetition of the offence shall report the same to the Secretary,
so that the case may be dealt with by the Match Committee
as laid down under the head of " Penalties," and the person
or persons offending may be removed from the firing point.
18. If any competitor fails to hand in his aggregate
ticket within the time specified, his score shall be
disallowed, and if any competitor fails to correctly
and legibly fill up and total his scores, his score shall
be disallowed, unless the error or omission be discovered

Hits in corners of 2nd and 3rd class targets outside the outer circle

PART   II.
SIGNALLING AND  SCORING.
(b) If a shot hits the ground in front of a target and then
rebounds and hits the target it is a ricochet, and is marked
in the ordinary matches by waving a black bar across the
target, it has no value, but is marked on the score card by
the letter R.     No spotting disc will be shown for a Ricochet.
(c) Misses will not be signalled; but if a target is lowered
under the impression that it has been hit, and no hit is found
on the target, after raising it the marker will wave a red flag
across its face, to signify that the target has not been struck
2. Any target hit, is lowered into the butts for examination, and the position of the hit is shown when the target
is again raised, by a spotting disc fastened through the bullet
hole.
3. When two shots strike a target, that which has the
highest value alone will be signalled, and the competitor
whose proper turn it was to fire at the target will be credited
35 with that shot, provided that he has fired. Both shots urill,
however, be shown with spotting discs. The competitor
whose proper turn it was to fire at the target will, on
application to the Range Officer, be allowed to fire a sighting
shot before his next shot in the competition.
4. The marking may be challenged before any other
shot has been fired at the same target, on the sum of twenty-
five (25) cents being first deposited with the Range Officer.
If, on examination, the marking in question is confirmed, the
twenty-five (25) cents shall be forfeited without appeal.
If on the contrary, the objection proves well founded, the
correct value will be signalled in the usual way, and the
twenty-five (25) cents shall be returned to the competitor who
paid it, and the score altered in accordance with the decision
received.
5. In squadded team competitions no charge will be
made for challenges.
' 6. If on a target being raised the spotting disc should
appear unmistakably to disagree with the signal disc, the
Register Keeper shall stop the firing at the target and report
the circumstances to the Ranger&fficer, who shall decide the
shot, after enquiry of the officer in charge of the butt, but
no deposit will be required, nor shall there be any appeal from
the decision given.
7. All claims for shots signalled must be made before
another shot is fired at the target in question, otherwise they
shall not be allowed.
8. If at the moment at which a competitor fires, his
target should be lowered in such a manner as to falsify the
result of his shot, the Range Officer is empowered to cancel
the result of such shot, and to permit the competitor to fire
another shot in its place.
9. All alterations of the Register must be initialled by the
Officer making them, but no alteration except in the case of a
clerical error, shall be made, without his first having communicated with the butt.
10. No person will be permitted to go and examine a
target during the meeting, except the Range Officer, or such
person or persons as he may duly authorize to do so on his
behalf.
36 VIII.—RIFLES.
The arm to be used in all matches shall be the Lee-Enfield,
Lee-Metford or Ross rifle, either of Government issue or of
bona fide Government pattern, and bearing the Government
viewer's mark.
All rifles must comply with the following conditions:—
1. Weight—Including cleaning rod, oil bottle, pull
through and magazine—not to exceed the greatest weight of
the regulation rifle of the corresponding pattern and mark.
2. Length—Maodmum, measured from the muzzle to the
butt when placed vertically on the ground, 51 in.
3. Stocks—Must not be checkered. No pad or shoe for

A metal fitting for the sole purpose of the attachment of
a match backsight is permitted.
4. Pull of Trigger—Any pattern of Rifle, 5 lbs.
5. Back-Sight—Any back-sight may be used that is not
telescopic.
The only colours allowed on the sights are black or tvhite,
or black and white, but not mixed so as to produce grey.
No appliance may be affixed for the purpose of shading the
sights.
Must not be supported by any means extraneous to the
rifle.
Note—The handguard may be removed at the option of
the firer.   The safety catch may" not be used for firing the rifle.
6. Foresights—Only those of approved Government
pattern will be allowed.
Note—Block foresights of any width will be allowed.
Split or aperture patterns will not be allowed.
IX.—AMMUNITION.
Competitors must use the ammunition supplied on the
range.
X.—POSITION.
In firing, the prone position will be used, and any
position that can be assumed on level ground is permissible,
provided there is no fixed rest, and that no part of the hand,
wrist or rifle touches the ground.
XL—ORDER   OF SHOOTING.
1.    Competitors must.be present at the firing points before
the   time   stated,   and   hand   their   tickets   to   the   Range
37 Officer, otherwise they will not be allowed to shoot; the time
to be regulated by the clock in the Secretary's office.
2. When at the firing points, competitors must comply
with all orders given by the Range Officer in charge.
3. All preliminaries must be completed before taking a
position for firing, and will not be allowed as an excuse for
delay.
4. In all ordinary competitions competitors shall, as
squadded, be formed up by threes, and fire shot and shot
alternately. Competitors must fire at the target to which they
are detailed, unless before they commence to shoot the Range
Officer details them to another target.
5. Competitors detailed for the same hour shall fire in
such order as the Range Officer may direct-
6. When but one competitor is present, and there is no
other squad with a vacancy to which he can be readily
transferred, he shall fire his shots without undue delay, but
the officer in charge of the firing point or some one named
by him, must witness the shooting and countersign the
register. Failing such verification the score will be invalidated. Any person present whom the competitor may name
will watch the score recorded, and, if need be, raise objection
before the next shot is fired. _._
7. No two competitors may shoot in any competition
with the same rifle, nor shall a competitor change his rifle
at any range during a competition, unless his first rifle should
become unserviceable through an accident, which must be
verified by the officer in charge.
8. The competitor must, after delivering each shot,
pay attention to the score called out by the Register Keeper
and himself see that such score is correctly entered on the
black board, so that any objection to the sconce as recorded
may be investigated before the next shot is fired.
9. In the case of unreasonable delay in firing on the part
of any competitor, or such delay as the Range Officer may
consider likely to prolong the firing beyond the time allowed,
the Range Officer shall have the right to caution and time
the competitor by a watch or sand glass, and if after such
caution the competitor does not fire before the expiration of
one minute, the Range Officer shall declare the shot forfeited, and call on the next competitor to proceed with the
firing.
