Favorably noted were our shooting activities in Hong Kong by the Swiss Defense Minister, Bundesrat Samuel Schmid, and by the Head of the Swiss Army Lieutenant Colonel Keckeis accompanied by the Military attaché in Beijing, Colonel Gertsch when they paid visits to Shanghai in February and June.

At a reception of the Swiss Cham in Shanghai, the president of the Swiss Rifles briefed the visitors, and in particular BR Schmid and thanked him personally for the support, for weapons, and for the free ammunition we are receiving from the Swiss authorities in Berne – and which is still flown in every two years, or so, by Swiss airlines, nota bene. BR Schmid requested that we let him know when our next shooting will take place – maybe we will see him on the range in November.
