I heard of this competition from my father who was a nephew of the Frazer shooting team. He said that a newspaper report of the time was to the effect that the trophy was won by "thirty feet of Frazers" in reference to their all being six footers. Perhaps there is something to genetics as I qualified as a first class shot in 1952 in the CMT!
