October 23 Raining rifles...?

1884
Yet again the Dunolly-ites were stingy with preserving their every move for us here in their future to natter about.
Except for one itty-bitty item (scribed by an equally desperate correspondant looking for gossip to share) which prattled on about the good rains and the rifle match between Carisbrook and Dunolly Rifle Clubs (Carisbrook won by 77 points).
Did you know the original rifle clubs were created by the Defence Dept way back when?
Well, now you know.

Thrilling bit of waffle, wasn't it...?
