Editor's note: Major Pretorius was an explorer, hunter and traded

in the African hinterland. 'During the East African Campaign of the

First World War the writer became a hunter of men, and his unequalled

knowledge of the ground over which operations were conducted rendered

his services most valuable to the British. Despite his military exploits,

it is as a big-game hunter and explorer of secret ways that Major Pretorius

will be remembered primarily.'
