Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Robert Senhouse Pitman DSO, MC (19 March, 1890 - 18 September, 1975), was a noted herpetologist, conservationist and friend of Joy Adamson. Charles Pitman was born in Bombay and educated at the Royal Naval School, Eltham, at Blundell's School in Tiverton, and at Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, which he left in 1909 having obtained a commission in the Indian Army. After a brief initial posting, Pitman joined the 27th Punjabi Regiment with which he stayed from 1910 to 1921 when he retired from the army to take up farming in Kenya. During his army career, which spanned World War I, Pitman fought in Mesopotamia (where he was awarded the DSO and MC), and also in Egypt and France.show more
