Hi Rob,

Thanks for your comment and question! We're looking into this and should be able to get back to you with an answer soon. In the meantime, thanks for your patience and your interest in N.C. Cockburn!

Rob Wheeler

When Major N C Cockburn died in 1924 there were 24 trophies in his billiard room, ranging from a lion skin to a couple of elephant feet, and a further six on the main staircase. This was at Harmston Hall in Lincolnshire, England.

Your catalogue entry refers to a copy of a typescript report with his journals: was there any indication of to whom that report had been sent?
