How it works


Adventurer, hunter, soldier, transport rider, farmer, Mossop started farming in Portuguese East Africa in 1914.  He found adventure by joining a Boer hunting party, learnt horsemanship, how to shoot and live off the veld, at that time teeming with buck, wildebeest and quagga. He signed up with the Light Horse Infantry and rushed off to war against the proud Zulu warriors.
