What was the Scottish Twenty Club? I have an identical medal inherited from my grandfather. I would be grateful for any information you may have.

I cannot find out much information about the Scottish Twenty Club but it appears to be a Scottish mixed regiment shooting competition established in 1872 - Administrator

Thank you for the above update, which I should have noticed before.
I understand that my Grandfather was a shooting instructor in the Seaforth Highlanders. Do you have any other contacts who could add to our knowledge
