Investing in success
Time to pull?
The Royal Corps of Signals boasts active Clay Target grounds at the following units:
- 11th (Royal School of Signals) Signal Regiment – Blandford
- 14th Signal Regiment – Brawdy
- 1st/16th/22nd Signal Regiments – Stafford Defence Intelligence School (DISC) – Chicksands
Accessible to all
Through generous funding provided by the Royal Signals Games Club and supported by The RSBF, the Corps Clay Target Team is able to provide excellent shooting opportunities at both unit grounds and many premier civilian clay grounds throughout a very active calendar of shooting events. Funding makes this otherwise prohibitively expensive sport accessible to all and is typical of the Corps ethos of investing in success.
Skilled and equipped
Competent and confident
Clay shooting skills cross over to a Signallers day job; through the sport, soldiers become familiar and later competent with a new shooting system and gain elevated confidence in gun handling and application of fire. These benefits are recognised at the highest levels, indeed there is currently a campaign to endorse Clay Target Shooting as Individual Collective Training, This in turn will attract further funding.
