"As the Great War erupted in 1914, Hodson was ordered to
leave his regiment and travel as British Consul to Abyssinia.
He arrived in Addis Ababa in 1915, after a journey through
the rugged hinterland of the country. On one excursion to
the forested region near Mount Marsabit, he hunted rhino
and elephant. 'I had a horrible sensation of utter helplessness,
as I realized that even with a .600 express, it is impossible to
stop an elephant at close quarters.' Mountain nyala were also
hunted in the Chilalo Mountains, though none were bagged - the
author was using a new rifle which he had not sighted in!" [Czech,
