thank you cyderman,

William Edward Pimm was a British sport shooter, who competed in the 1908 Summer Olympics and 1912 Summer Olympics.

In the 1908 Olympics he won a gold medal in the team small-bore rifle event, was sixth in the stationary target small-bore rifle event, sixth in the moving target small-bore rifle event and 15th in the disappearing target small-bore rifle event.

Four years later he won a gold medal in the 50 metre team small-bore rifle event, silver in the 25 metre team small-bore rifle event, was seventh in the 25 metre small-bore rifle event and 10th in the 50 metre rifle from the prone position event.

Great site about the 1908 Olympics LONDON 1908 has over 13,000 pictures, 1800 videos and many stories and data
Many are wonderful old photos of the first-ever Games in the British capital take you back more than 100 years in time

Many thanks, I thought I would bring these names because William Edwin Pimm was my great grandfather & William Kensett Styles was my grandfather, and 2012 there will be a lot of activity on the web on this subject. I believe that William Kensett Styles attended the first meeting in Greece to start the modern Olympic Games, what he di there I don't know.

Just off on a cruise when I get back I will look at this site.
