Notes Chapter XV
1. Mr. Horace Ford, practising with the writer at Sutton Coldfield in 1851, put Mr. Reynolds Hole (now Dean of Rochester), who was marking, into considerable jeopardy by a low arrow, of which Mr. Hole lost sight.


This gentleman, however, was at that period a very dangerous customer, as the following extract from the society's minute book shows: 'July 15, 1886. At this wardmote A. L. Willett hit a scarlet, and the arrow hung down across the target. J. F. Alston announced that he was about to split it, which he proceeded to do with the next arrow he shot, which also hit the scarlet.'
