Chris Hockley is the Vice-captain and has been a stalwart of GB, Welsh and RAF teams in the UK and abroad for a number of years. He has toured to all of the major (and most of the minor) shooting destinations, usually as Manager, Vice-Captain or Captain of the Team. His individual highlight being his bronze medal in the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Malaysia.
In the 2006 GB Team to South Africa the two Chris’s roles were reversed with Chris Hockley as Captain and Chris Fitzpatrick as Vice. Chris H is delighted to be supporting the Captain and hopes he provides as good a service to Chris Fitzpatrick, as he did for him.
An engineer, Chris retired from the RAF in 2003 after 35 years and has since joined the world of academia, working for Cranfield University lecturing on Reliability and Maintainability. I am sure it is relevant to the aim of this Team.
