In the past 25 years Ernest Burton of East Islip, Long Island has been either judge or gunner at more than 400 retriever and spaniel field trials, and his shooting clothes are a veritable almanac of his years with the sport. The badges on his hat were earned for participating in field trials from New England to California. His vest is emblazoned with his favorite game birds—dove, quail, grouse, woodcock, pheasant and black duck—executed in petit point by his wife. His shooting jacket was made in Australia, of Bedford cord, while he was serving as a Naval Air Force gunnery instructor during World War II. For a gallery of field trial participants in color and an article by famed Field Trial Judge Henry P. Davis, see page 46.
