Photograph titled 'Sweet Life for Rhino Rufus'. Caption on back reads, in part: 'Rufus the lonely rhino is lonely no longer. The two-ton youngster whose story was told in "The People" a fortnight ago, has been mooching moodily round his old home ever since the British wife who brought him up from a baby had to leave him last year. But now he has got a chum to keep him happy...a baby elephant!'

Photograph by safari-goer Mrs Millicent Sutter, Tsavo National Park, Kenya, May 1965.
