Some Selected Reports from The Windsor and Eton Express
5th February 1842
Pigeon Shooting

A fat hog was to have been shot for at Burnham on Tuesday last, but although there was a tolerable muster the entries did not fill. The parties present, however, made up several sweepstakes, the first of which was won by Mr.Morley; the second was divided between Messrs. Duckett and T.Howard; the third was won by Mr.Duckett; and the fourth was divided between Messrs. Bishop and Simpson.

Last week a sparrow match was shot at the same place between Messrs.J.Howard, H.Agar, and W.Williams, the former winning, after shooting a tie with Mr.Williams.

The Star Pigeon Club met on Thursday in the Brocas, when a snuff box, given by Mr.Dash, of the Star and Garter, was contended for, free of entry, to members - nine birds each. Twelve shot for the prize, which was won by Mr.J.Howard, who killed all his birds. A sweepstakes (seven entries) succeeded, which was won by Mr.Winyard, and one , at two birds each, was won by Mr.Hill. Mr.Duckett also shot two matches with Mr.Hill and won them. At the conclusion of the day's sport the parties dined together at the Star and Garter.
