John Hugh Edrich, MBE (born 21 June 1937) is a former English cricketer who, during a career that ran from 1956 to 1978, was considered one of the best batsmen of his generation.[1] Born in Blofield, Norfolk, Edrich came from a cricketing family, his four cousins, Eric Edrich, Bill Edrich, Geoff Edrich and Brian Edrich, all having played first-class cricket.[1] He was educated at Bracondale Private School from the ages of eight to seventeen, during which time he played cricket at weekends and was coached by former cricketer CSR Boswell.

Edrich played for Surrey and England. He was renowned for playing the cut, the cover drive and scoring off his legs, earning over the years a reputation for dogged fearlessness. His statistical achievements show that he was amongst the best players of his generation, playing a total of seventy seven Test matches for England between 1963 to 1976, and scoring a triple-century in 1965 that is the fifth highest Test score for England.[2]

VINTAGE SHOOTING INTERNATIONAL MEDAL DEWAR CUP 1931

VINTAGE SHOOTING INTERNATIONAL MEDAL DEWAR CUP 1931
A stunning International Enamel Medal on a Hanger. Awarded for the Dewar Cup see below.
Superb Enamel Union Jack. The Hanger has Crossed Rifles with Enamel Bars for S.M.R.C.(Rifle Club) Unable to locate S.M.
There are another 2 Bars for COACH 1931& 1932.
The Dewar Cup is a prestigious Competition and to attain International Standard and to be picked to represent your Country is a marvelous achievement
The Competition in G.B. is held at Bisley and when in America at Camp Perry
Medal size 2in and made by W.Miller Birmingham
Web Site info.
In Canada the only match that I know of that's shot at 100 yards is the Dewar match shot at the nationals. The Dewar is a long-running international postal competition between the U.S., Britain, Canada and (I think) Australia and New Zealand.

The Dewar is special because it has two stages: 20 shots at 50 yards (not metres) and 20 shots at 100 yards, for a total score out of 400. The trick is moving quickly from 50 to 100 yards because you don't get extra time in between.
