A celebrity in his day, British safari hunter and adventurer Denys Finch Hatton was one of the most prominent white hunters in the Golden Age of safari hunting. As at home with British nobility as he was among the dangers and dust of Africa, it allowed Hatton to live in both worlds, even guiding the hunt for the then Prince of Wales.
This bolt action rifle belonged to Hatton, frequently held as one of the best hunters and guides of the era, and surely saw prolific use afield as he hunted the Kenyan wilds in the 1920s.
