It may be observed that the title of field-cornet is now frequently applied to the second officer of a rifle association.".

"This book will give you a broader, and more detailed, insight into the fascinating world of wildlife here. There is far more to the Pilanesberg than just finding lions! Pilanesberg is one of the oldest and largest volcanic complexes on earth. You may find ... the largest, or the fastest, or one of the most endangered land mammals on earth; or the largest flightless bird, just one of over 300 species of birds in the Park; or some of the thousands of plant, insect or reptiles species. Of course, one can never hope to see it all, but Pilanesberg's magic will be found in its unique geology, its ancient and extraordinary history, in the diversity of life and in looking for the big game. One of the best wildlife experiences that you can hope for is waiting for you, if you know where and how to look. Use this book to help you.".
