Edward Hodsell, the game hunter (2nd of 2)

Edward Hodsell, the game hunter

Edward Hodsell was serving in India before he left to come to New Zealand. Here, he sits with a crocodile trophy. He came to New Zealand hoping to be an army instructor in 1926, but because of a shipping strike in Sydney he arrived too late to put in an application. He took up land in Northland until the depression drove him and his family off.
