Alastair Brown

Alastair has been shooting since the age of six and was given his first full-bore rifle for Christmas at aged eight, which he still has, although he has rather outgrown it. He went to Gresham’s from 1989-91 and whilst there toured to Canada twice - with Wandsworth FBRC in 1990 and the Athelings in 1991, picking up two Governor Generals finals badges, one Lt. Governor’s final badge and winning the Families Competition. Since then he has toured to the Channel Islands in 2002 with the NRA team and to South Africa in 2009 with the Old Guildfordians, although he never actually attended that school but is an ‘O.G.’ on two other counts. More recently he shot for England in the European Long Range Championships last year and is a reserve for the GB rifle team to Canada later this year. He is also a founding member of Hogleas Hall Rifle Club which won the Opening Shot competition during last Imperial Meeting, although nobody has actually seen this pot since prize-giving.

Outside of shooting Alastair is currently enjoying temporary retirement, having drawn a line under his 15 year investment banking career in time for his daughter Audrey’s birth last October. For the past 18 months he has also been actively managing a mammoth house renovation project in Wimbledon, into which he hopes to move his lovely wife Sheila and little Audrey before he jets off to South Africa in April.
