Aldershot Rifle & Pistol Club History
The club was formed in October 1919 by ex-members of the WW1 Volunteers, the equivalent of the Home Guard in WW2, as the “Aldershot Rifle Club”. It shot at various indoor ranges in the Aldershot area until WW2 curtailed all activities for the duration.
After the war the club was reformed and obtained the free use of a disused chalk quarry. Three 4-lane ranges were constructed, 25, 50 and 100 yards which were opened in 1947. Shooting took place on Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. In winter the Wednesday meetings took place in an army barrack range in Aldershot.
