Given that Bisley will reveal all ..... I'm 5'-10" precisely.

And precision in this matter is of some importance as my height is a source of considerable amusement in my family. At least, for my family, and at my expense.

My wife is 6'-0".
My eldest son is 6'-5"
My 2nd eldest & my youngest sons are each 6'-4"
My 3rd son is 6'-2"

I am the family midget.
So whilst being unbowed by age, even with a deep breath and standing as purposefully as possible, I can never be described as a tall man. I do sometimes, when circumstances dictate, tell tall stories, but that is another matter ...

I do so hope that Gilly is less than 5'-10". Even if it is only by that ".

If there is a height restriction at Bisley, I will easily pass under it.
You're only young once - so it's best to make it last for the whole of your lifetime.
