Hill, Henry Todhunter (1842–1912)

It came as a shock to members and visitors when the sad news of Mr Henry Hill's death was mentioned at the N.S.W. Gun Club last Thursday, as very few knew of it. Mr. Hill was a great favorite with the members. He came of a good family of shooters and sportsmen, and was a very good trap shot. He always shot under the nom-de-plume of 'Ryde.' On January 11, 1905, he put up a splendid performance at the Hampden Ground, Pennant Hill, by grassing 54 pigeons out of 56 from 21yds and 34yds, with the first barrel. He was in his 69th year, and had been ailing for some time. The late Mr. Hill was buried at the Field of Mars Cemetery.
