The Selous Memorial at the Natural History Museum


    THE movement started in 1917 to perpetuate the memory of the late Capt. F. C. Selous, D.S.O., by a national memorial achieved its aim on Thursday, June 10, when Mr. Edward North Buxton, vice-chairman of the Memorial Committee, himself a great hunter in his day, in the unavoidable absence of the chairman, the Right Hon. E. S. Montagu, M.P., unveiled at the Natural History Museum, South Kensington, a bronze bust of Selous–the work of Mr. W. R. Colton, R.A.–before a distinguished and representative gathering.
