Recently Mr. Gordon Kennington, a tobacco planter of Fort Jameson, who has been demobolised from the K.A.R. Armoured Car unit, shot an Elephant in the Petauke district of the Luangwa Valley. It is said that a new record has been established for Northern Rhodesia and possibly for Central Africa. The weight of the tusks (shown in the photograph with Mr. Kennington) are 120 and 124 lb, heoght 8 feet 4 inches and the circumference 21 and a half to 23 and a quarter inches. Because there has been very little shooting in the Luangwa Valley during the war years, it is now said to be teeming with game.
