This article indicate that Dundry was also called Jumbo.
Wirths claimed this elephant was the first born in Australia. Possibly they obtained this animal from Moore Park around 1905. There is a report in the Evening Post (NZ) from 1923 of a Jumbo being shot on 14 May 1923. It is mentioned as being Taronga Parks Big Show Elephant. This death date matches the elephant Dundry (Dundray) which is recorded also as being shot on the same date at the same facility.
