Their Highnesses Prince Andreas and Hereditary Prince Hubertus of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha Honor Members of the Schützengesellschaft Coburg.


On Tuesday, July 30, 2013, His Highness Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha accompanied by his son, His Highness Hereditary Prince Hubertus of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, attended a ceremonial dinner honoring two longtime members of the Schützengesellschaft Coburg (Shooting Club Coburg).  The club was established in 1354, but the handwritten register of its members dates from the year 1710 to the present.

Anyway, during last month’s dinner Prince Andreas awarded the Protektoratsabzeichen (protectorate badge) of the Schützengesellschaft Coburg to Mr. Detlef Zöllner who is responsible for the protection of the handwritten register.  Prince Andreas also honored Mr. Reinhold Rau for his longtime membership — 60 years — and dedication to the Schützengesellschaft Coburg.
