'Pompey' Gull was a master pearler from his youth. His independent life led to the 10th Light Horse and the Imperial Camel Corps in WWI, fighting with such as Lawrence and at Damascus in the Great Ride where he earned the Military Cross for clearing machine gun nests. Postwar he helped quell Egyptian rioting and in 1920 was instrumental in controlling the hordes of Japanese and Koepanger race riots at Broome. A great story of a type of Australian now rarely seen.
