i purchased a book off e bay this week, purely because off the front picture
Modern Archery by Frank L bilsom.

he is holding a longbow at full draw with his bow hand at 45 degrees and in perfect alignment

on reading the notes on the author. he was a member of the RTS
he became capt of targets at the RTS. vice-president of GNAS
and when GNAS first instituted classification scores in 1948. he was the only MB archer and also for the following year..

MB york was 700
his york round on 18th august 1948 in competition at the Royal Tox
100 yds........326
80yds...........306
60yds...........135.
total............133-767-21

anyone here beat that with their longbow.

on reading the last paragragh, this amazed me
IT WAS ALSO A TWO WAY YORK.

NOW HE'D MAKE A DAMN GOOD SENIOR COACH

In TARGET ARCHERY by Robert P. Elmer (Hutchinson's), page 220 shows a photo of Frank l. Bilson stringing A bow in the club-room of the Royal Toxophilite Society.

I have two of Bilson's bows, including that with which he is shooting. The bow is a hybrid with non-working ears. He was a National Champion.
