Siller gun medal

Period:
Early 20th Century
Description:

This medal was awarded to Duncan Wyllie, the winner of the siller gun competition in July 1902. The shooting competition was orginally established during a period when burgesses had to be prepared to defend the town. The last competition occured in 1881 and soon after the Incorporation of Trades ceased to exist. The competition was revived in 1902 to celebrate the coronation of Edward VII and is now part of the annual Guid Nychburris celebrations in June in Dumfries.
