Until being used for team trophies at the National Scout Air Rifle Competition the Connaught Trophies were the trophies for small-bore (rimfire - 0.22 inch) postal competitions with entries from all over the Empire / Commonwealth. More details of this trophy may be found on the Connaught Trophy web site
