David started shooting at Royal Grammar School Guildford in 1983 where he reversed his Mini over all the school’s rifles before coming 2nd in HM the Queen's Prize in a tie shoot at the age of 20. Earlier this year, he competed in his 26th Imperial Meeting at Bisley. In the intervening period, he has made 14 appearances in the Queens Final, and achieved 10 top 50 finishes in the Grand Aggregate.

This is David’s 6th tour with the GB team, but his first to Australia as all the previous five have been to Canada. His first was back in 1989, his most recent last year as Adjutant to Jane Messer’s team and in the interim, he was Captain of the first GB U25 touring team (New Zealand 1992) and a member of the Palma Match winning GB team in 2007. At home, he has represented England 5 times in the National match and once in the Mackinnon, as well as representing GB once in the Kolapore.

Away from Bisley, David is an accountant for the Civil Aviation Authority, but unfortunately was unable to secure the team a corporate discount on Duty Free.
