James Lewis


  • Norfolk
  • England

James Lewis started target rifle shooting at Rugby school, and progressed to senior international honours via the Athelings. This is his 6th GB tour and second to Australia, his previous trip being the pre-Palma tour in 1994 to New Zealand & Perth as a team hopeful. He is delighted to be returning finally as a full member on his first Palma team.

Winning the Queen's Prize in 2007 was undoubtedly the ultimate triumph for Jumbo (as he is affectionately known) and he has several other individual successes to his name in nearly 30 years of shooting, including winning the St. George’s. He has also represented England 4 times in the National Match and GB once in the Kolapore.

An Investment Banker since leaving the Army in 1989, earlier this year he started a new Investment Management company catering for professional and aspirational medium to high net worth investors.

Jumbo is Vice Captain to Jeremy Langley’s Canada & USA tour next year, together with Ross McQuillan as adjutant, and would love to hear some Camp Perry stories as a vicarious recce.
