VOLUNTEER INTELLIGENCE.

The Dunedin Navala opened their shooting season by firing a match on Saturday afternoon. Sides were chosen by Lieutenant Strong and Lieutenant Dunlop. The match, which was very enjoyable, resulted in a tie, both teams scoring 441 points. The ranges were 200 and 500 yards; seven shots at each. The shooting was not satisfactory, some very poor scores being made, especially at 500 yds, some of the men failing to find the target. After the match a trial of some special Whitney ammunition was made, but it scarcely came up to Victorian standard. The following are the scores : Lieutenant Strong's Team.
