Elsie Fenwick In B.E.A In 1904-5 with her Rigby .275 Rifle

It's not every day that you find a safari diary like this, particularly one written by a woman.  Elsie Fenwick would certainly have been a pioneering woman in her day as it really was a man's world.  Her diary which contains 150 photos and 74 pages, covers her safari in British East Africa with her husband and brother in law during 1904-5.  It is a fascinating insight into a bygone era when Africa's game was still very much untouched and hunting was certainly for the elite.

    I will send a photo of an English Mauser action with London Proof Marks that I purchased and rebuilt into an 8mm x 63mm using a Belgian 8 x 60s barrel.The walnut stock was made by myself and given the velocity of 2700 fps achieved with 200 grain projectiles I am pleased with it's weight of 10 lbs. It has proved more than adequate for our Tahr & Red stag in New Zealand.I was told by the owner of the action that it was made by Westley Richards and originally had a 375 barrel which was missing it must have been the 375 Rimless Westley Richards cartridge. I will forward a photo of the complete rifle.
    Yours Faithfully
