This Association deplores the alleged actions of Dylann Storm ROOF,
Charleston, USA on 18 June 2015.

He does not have, nor has he ever had, any known connection to our Association.
That he has chosen to bring the Rhodesian flag (along with others) into disrepute is deplorable but unfortunately beyond our control.

His ignorance of Rhodesia is blatantly obvious. We wonder if he would have chosen the Rhodesian flag had he known that 80% of the Rhodesian Security Forces were black. The war in Rhodesia was not a racial war, but against terrorism. We fought to protect the innocent. We honour our fallen black brothers equally alongside all races who fought against Communism in Rhodesia.

Our heartfelt sympathies go to the victims and families of those affected by this senseless act.

Our annual Remembrance Day Parade and Service in LONDON is in November.

The Remembrance Day Parade takes place at 1030 at the Rhodesian Plot outside St Margaret's Church.
Afterwards, we gather for luncheon at the London Novatel, Waterloo.

How you can support this web site for all Rhodesian Forces:

Our time is now a long time ago, and the material on this web site is used for research by descendents of many of our members. To that end it would be useful if all of you would find your Unit's pages here, and see if you have anything useful to add. In particular, we need course photographs, particularly with names, and Roll of Honour Information. Unit dates of formation and dissolution are also needed. Do not send original photographs by post. All material may be sent to the Web Master. Please compress photos scans before sending, to an 800 pixels wide image, if you know how. They are also better sent uncompressed than not at all.

Use the menu on the left to find a particular service.
