Am trying to trace a Canadian wrestler who went by the name of Tarzan Bill Hunter, he started his career in Canada in the mid 1930s and then spent a very long period in the UK before going back to North America, any information however trivial would be appreciated

Hi Raven. Have a look at wrestlingdata.com and you'll find a lot of his results. I have to admit I don't recall his name at all and it seems he first was in Blighty in 1937 and then again 1950.

Cheers, John

Thanks for your reply John, there is a photo on wrestling data but to be honest I am not wholly convinced this is the man.  The photo is of a very young man whereas the bloke I remember was quite mature looking. Nevertheless thanks for your help and I shall keep trying.

Hi Raven. I think ou'll find that is a picture of a young Tarzan Bill. The rest checks out!
