The original painting is in the Royal Academy Diploma Collection, painted in 1866. On the 19th of July that year, the Prince of Wales was visiting on the fifth day of the National Rifle Association's Wimbledon Prize Meeting and, borrowing Captain Ross Senior's Whitworth rifle, hit the target. The rest of Ross's company are depicted before a large canvas wind-screen: Captain Ross Junior is capping his rifle preparatory to taking his place before the target. Captain Heaton is firing, lying down (this was his personal impression of the engraving). Lord Elcho is on horseback
at the back — Sergeant Pixley, Lt-Colonel Holford, Captain Heaton, Captain Drake, Colonel Colville, Captain Horatio Ross (father of Edward), George Mackenzie and Martin Smith are in the foreground. All have signed this engraving together with the artist and the engraver.
