Comments:
Robert McKay shot in the Queens Final 11 times. 1883/87/93/6/7/8/1901 and 05.

He also won the Grand Aggregate Gold Cross in 1893 but this medal does not appear to be in the collection. The Grand Aggregate is made up of a number of competitions which takes place throughout the Imperial Meeting which by tradition takes place during the last two weeks in July.
