King’s Prize Trophy

In the Orroroo Memorial Hall, you will find a unique and unexpected moose head trophy. The trophy was presented to the Orroroo Rifle Club by the family of the late Walter Colman Addison, who won it at Ottawa, Canada, in a Triangular Rifle Match between Great Britain, Canada and Australia. This also commemorates the fact that in 1907 he was the first Australian to win the coveted “King’s Prize” for Rifle Shooting at Bisley, England.
