Biography

Harry Munday joined the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) in 1869 and served them for 17 years until retiring with the rank of major in 1886. At the time of joining the HAC, he was, like his father, an excellent fencer, but soon also became an excellent shot and would go on to have a long and magnificent record on the pistol and rifle ranges of both Wimbledon and Bisley.

Munday captured the 1873 Prince of Wales Prize at Bisley and represented England and Great Britain in the Kolapore and National meetings. In 1923 he appeared at Bisley for the 50th consecutive year, at the age of 76. After his Army career, Munday became a manufacture of tricycle carriers. He was also a Justice of the Peace (JP) for Middlesex.
