Letter from Normandy Rifle Club

Posted by Helen Morgan

Mister Chairman, 

On behalf of the members of the Normandy Rifle Club, French Long Range Rifle Shooting association, and on our personal behalf, at the occasion of the Centenary of the end of the First World War we are please to insure the NRA of Australia and the NRA of New-Zealand  that we have a particular and warm thought of gratitude for the thousands of ANZAC who came to France and scarified their youth on the battlefields for our freedom. Many are still lying in earth of La Somme or of Villers-Bretonneux. They have been the tragic ambassadors of the franco-australian and the franco-new zealander friendship. We will never forget them. 

Please accept our kind regards. 

Philippe Ginestet, 
Chevalier dans l'Ordre National du Mérite,
NRC Chairman an NRA of GB  Vice-President. 

Robert Chombart,
NRC President Fondateur, 
NRA of GB Vice-President 

Note - this letter has been replied to by the Chairman of the NRAA and the Chairman of the NRANZ
