Martin will be enjoying quite a few ‘firsts’ on this tour – first England tour, first time to the Caribbean and first time as Adjutant. Fully appreciating his responsibilities, he is also aware that when things do go awry for the team, there’s always sunshine and rum! Martin initially picked up a rifle with the Marine Cadets many years ago, both shooting and coaching to a respectable degree of success. A break followed with the arrival of his daughters and then in 2008 he joined Altcar Rifle Club, where he can often be found on a bleak Sunday afternoon, winter or summer. He toured the Channel Islands with the NRA team in 2014 and represented England in his first National Match in 2015. Martin is currently in the unenviable position of being honorary secretary for Club, County and Country.
Away from the range Martin will occasionally try his hand at unusual travel, including having driven a tuk-tuk the length of India and a moto-taxi across Peru. He is very much looking forward to shooting and socialising with his team and new friends from across the Atlantic.
