Dominion of Canada Rifle Association Bronze Prize Medallion - Unnamed

The Dominion of Canada Rifle Association was founded in 1868 and incorporated by an Act of Parliament 63-64 Victoria Chapter 99, assented to July 7, 1900, to promote and encourage the training of marksmanship throughout Canada.  During the early years the Annual Prize Meetings consisted of smallbore, pistol, Service Rifle (A) (Military Targets) and Service Rifle (B) (Target Rifle Targets). All competitions were under the control of DCRA staff.  Additionally, in those years all members of the DCRA Bisley Team were Military members, as was the majority of the membership.
