Gilbert Houcke.

This is not Gilbert Houcke.
It's Philippe Gruss and his eleven panthers at Bertram Mills Circus, Olympia London, 1960/61.
Rudi was also there that winter season along with Knie's Elephants presented by Rupert Bemmerl.

Certainly not Gilbert Houcke but Philippe Gruss. Gilbert presented never leopards only tigers.

Resume of Philippe Gruss:
His first leopard group was taken over by Arlette gruss. Then he started presenting horses.
