A photo of Major Gordon after whom Gordon Park is named - one or two lines have been written about him by Baden Powell:-
It is named after the popular Commissioner of the Boy Scouts of Bulawayo, Major "Boomerang" Gordon. He has a nasty habit - at least snakes think it nasty - of catching a snake by the tail and "cracking" it as you would crack a whip, thereby breaking its neck.
