How it works


On his eighteenth birthday, Gilles enlisted in the French army and two months later was captured by the Germans. Twice. he escaped, the second time walking almost 1,000 miles back to France. At the end of the war, Tre-Hardy made a career in the French African colonies, becoming in time Chief Administrator and later chief Game Warden in [the] French Soudan, Ivory Coast, Niger and [the] Central African Republic, he was in the right place at the right time. Game was plentiful. There was plenty of time to hunt. Trophy quality was excellent.
