Could someone post the history of the “glorious twelfth” shooting party. I am not familiar with it.

"The Shooting Party" was a 1984 film starring James Mason in his last role.

"The Glorious 12th" has been the opening day of shooting in the UK for more than a century.
People left the cities in the summer to avoid disease, and relax in the cooler countryside.

Looking at the painting, I believe I can see both Walsingham and Ripon in addition to the dogs. What about you?...Geo



I was serious about seeing (imagining?) Ripon and Walsingham in the picture. Look at the men on either end of the group just behind the red setters and tell me I'm wrong...Geo

Frederick Oliver Robinson, 2nd Marquess of Ripon. He died on September 22nd 1923 in the field, having killed 51 grouse on his last drive.



His Hon. Thomas de Grey, later Lord Walsingham



Duleep Singh may be in the crowd also



Prince Freddie Duleep Singh was Ripon's nemesis. The two men did not speak to each other, but squared off often. One drive the Prince shot a high bird crossing his front, which fell dead and nearly struck Ripon. Enraged, he stormed the hill, yelling various imprecations, including “bloody nig...” Singh then proceeded to down only such birds as were flying toward his fellow guest and shot them so that Ripon was bombarded by several pheasant corpses a minute.

My first time shooting inYorkshire, I had been practicing long crossers, and chondelles, 40 to 60 yards, for several months before I went to shoot.

That was because I had heard that the shots were going to be 40 to 50 yards, with lots of crossing birds etc.

Birds were being driven off a hill, flying past me exactly as I had been practicing. I was standing in front of a hedge at the base of the hill.
Little did I know , That there was another peg 40 yards or so on the other side of the hedge. They sort of had the pegs in a crescent transecting the hedge.

So, for the entire drive, I pounded those long birds and dropped them on top of him. Worse yet, I was poaching them just before he was ready to shoot.
He was waiting for them to clear the hedge, and I was trying to prevent that.

My total poached was maybe 6-8 birds.

He was a good sport about it, unlike Ollie.

Yup-- and ABC pirated the tag line from his classic- "City of New Orleans" -- with their usage of his tag line--"Good Mornin' America, How are You?"" I also like his perfect country song: "You Never Even Call Me By My Name"-- great stuff- like John Prine's songs-- RWTF
