Oldaker was huntsman to the Berkeley Hounds for thirty-two years. He is here shown wearing the distinctive deep yellow Berkeley livery, carrying the traditional twist bugle horn and mounted on his favourite hunter, Brush. It is possible that Oldaker himself was the first publisher of this portrait. This version, however, was issued by Frost & Reed in 1930.
