October Training

With 150 days to go the start of tour, and the summer’s extreme weather reflected in the increasingly beautiful autumn foliage around Bisley, the team met for their final training weekend of 2022. 

September Training

The team met early for breakfast on Saturday for the start of our training weekend. The excitement that might usually accompany the first training weekend now we are an official GB touring team was noticeably and appropriately dampened by the sombre national events of the preceding days; the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, not only our Queen but also our Patron.

Featured Team Members

Nick Tremlett
GM SB
England
Cap #:
661
Big 5 Caps:
59

Long in the shooting tooth is a fair description of Nick – and that was 5 years ago! Shooting at international level since 1976, Nick has the distinction of having toured with GB before most of this team were born. Dabbling in both target and match rifle Nick has won the Queen’s Prize and the Hopton, and a few other trophies along the way. He was captain of the undefeated GB team to South Africa in 2017, a tour during which he also won the South Africa President’s Prize. By profession he is a semi-retired vet, and has had to minister to ailing team members on previous tours – much to their consternation!

Jason Pepera-Hibbert
England
Cap #:
938
Big 5 Caps:
2

Jason began shooting at Wellington College under the watchful eye of Nigel Ball, another member of the team. As a 2016 Atheling, Jason became obsessed with wind-reading and team coaching.

Whilst studying at Exeter University, Jason spent his holidays going on tour with the NRA Team 2018 and the GB U25 Team to the World Championships NZ 2019 where he placed 4th individually and 2nd in the team match (as a shooter!). If you’ve ever talked to Jason, you would know he loves difficult and changing wind conditions, so naturally his favourate range to date is Trentham, NZ. The range in Bloemfontein is also known for its challenging conditions, so naturally he is excited to experience it first hand.

This will be Jason’s first senior GB Tour and he is looking forward to working with such a strong team in an effort to win back the Palma Trophy in 2024.

Jack Alexander
Ireland
Cap #:
921
Big 5 Caps:
28

Jack Alexander started fullbore shooting at the age of 13 under the supervision of his father, leading on to a number of years shooting with Wiltshire ACF. As with many of his shooting friends he caught the bug and never looked back. Jack went on to shoot for Ireland followed by his first GBU25 tour to America 2015, where he took part in his first World championships, picking up individual and team golds. Jack’s other individual shooting highlight is representing Ireland in two Commonwealth Games.

Outside of shooting Jack has a plumbing business. He also likes to find as much time as possible to head in to the mountains to hike, climb and take part in many outdoor activities.

Toby Raincock
England
Cap #:
833
Big 5 Caps:
41

A product of Epsom College shooting and part of a winning Ashburton Team on three occasions, Toby first toured to Canada with the Athelings in 1993, returning there 2 years later with England. He then embarked on a series of successful tours with GB to America, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, including three victorious Palma matches. He has also participated in many Mackinnon, National and Kolapore Matches, proudly Captaining the latter to a tense win in 2019.

When not on the range, Toby has been known to swing the occasional golf club, although these days, his two young sons seem to occupy more of his non-shooting time. During the week and to earn some money to pay for his shooting tours, Toby is the CEO of Shard Capital Partners, a wealth management firm, based in the City.

Captain’s Foreword

My family has a long tradition of fullbore rifle shooting with substantial links to South Africa. My Grandfather Major Tom Anstey, captained the 1953 GB Team to South Africa whilst my father, Major David Scott-Langley, was Adjutant to the 1963 GB Team.
