ARTHUR HALLIDAY MEMORIAL SHIELD

At the monthly meeting of the Q.R.A. Council held on Monday 21st October 1918, Major Woods attended and handed over the shield and badges won by the late Arthur Halliday, at Bisley, in 1913 and 1914, these having been bequeathed to the association. All the members of the council present were personal friends of Mr. Halliday, and regretful mention was made of the loss sustained by his early death in France. The City of Brisbane Club stated that it was proposed to present to the Q.R.A. a shield to be known as the Halliday Memorial Shield, to be shot for in connection with a match to be known as the Halliday Memorial Match at the annual prize-meetings. It was decided to assure the club that every effort would be made to perpetuate the memory of the late rifleman.

On Monday 15 December 1919, City of Brisbane Club notified its intention to present a challenge shield, to be known as the Halliday Memorial Shield, for competition at the annual prize meetings. This was added to the prize list of the A. L. Halliday Memorial Match, on the May programme in 1920. The winner will hold the shield for one year and will receive a gold medal from the association.

The Arthur Halliday Memorial Shield, awarded by the QRA, to the winner of a two-range match — seven shots at 300 yards and seven shots at 600 yards.
