Fieldsports Britain – Prince Philip, a great shooting man

It’s all about Prince Philip in #FieldsportsBritain this week. In our tribute to an outstanding countryman, we talk to the people who built the Sandringham gun bus, the charity that helped him re-establish the grey partridge on his shoot, the shooting organisation of which he was patron, a maneater-shooter who expertly explains Prince Philip’s 1961 elephant-back tiger hunt, and we even find the Pakistani politician who, as a teenager, accompanied Prince Philip on a duck shoot that caused a diplomatic incident. That’s not all. Wellington Barracks tailor Jonathan Macintyre explains why bearskins have to be made from real bears, David is on the News Stump outing the antis who hated Prince Philip, and Charlie dedicates the whole of Hunting YouTube to the First Gentleman of the Realm’s and the whole royal family’s love of shooting and the outdoors. Rest in peace, sir.
