WRA - A Brief History

The Association was founded in 1904. Its aim was, and is, to promote and encourage marksmanship throughout Wales in the interests of the defence of the Realm and the permanence of the Volunteer and Auxiliary Forces, Naval, Military and Air.

After the First World War, in which many members of the Association became casualties, the function of the Association were assumed by the Welsh XX Club from its clubhouse at Bisley, until the Association was restarted under a new Constitution in 1976.

The latest Constitution replaces the 1988 Constitution and is effective from the end of the Bisley Imperial Meeting, 2006.
