This young male Indian Elephant died of natural causes in the Scottish Zoo, Glasgow 1899 and was bought by the museum from EH Bostock for £7. Almost a century later, in August 1997, he was garlanded with ribbons and silks and took part in a procession through Glasgow to mark the 50th anniversary of India's independence.
It is not known what his original name was. Following a competition run by the Evening Times newspaper in 1997, he was named 'Kelvin'.
