    A very important Rhodesian poster  P1040010

    This poster forms the center piece of the Rhodesian display at Londons Imperial War Museum .
    It was brought back by an X SOG man along with some other pieces of paperwork.
    Its a large poster , and I know of no others ,
    Only mine and the IWM one.
    A nice terr piece of history .

    Great poster, picked a couple up at ministry of information in 78, Owen yours may be one of my former posters. This same version was also done using full color pictures.

    To put things in perspective about the reward values, ca. 1978 a Night's stay in the selborne hotel in bulawayo was about 7 rhod dollars, lion lager about 30 cents a bottle.

    Nice helmet and cap. Mckenzie wore a US M1 helmet on ops, a pic of him on a landrover wearing it during one of the externals. One pic I've seen of an SAS troopie at another external (one of the big ones) he's sporting a cutdown rpd and wearing an SA steel pot.

    Hey, just picked up Croukamp's autobiography of his time in Rhodesia, looks like a great read and next in line after I finish Last Valley, about Dien Bien Phu, exc. book!

    HI Owen,
    This is the book:

    http://www.amazon.com/Bush-War-Rhodesia-Extraordinary-Reconnaissance/dp/1581606141/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1324002964&sr=1-1

    He was a selous scout NCO. Looks like a terrific read.

    I'm not familiar with those comfort posters.
    Owen, did you ever get any of the Rhodesian full color recruiting brochures sets? I picked up a couple hundred sets, sold them all off over the years, Set consisted of a large full color brochure with lettering "THIS IS THE ARMY" and pick of an RLI mag gunner close up. The inside had photos of the various units in the army. Then the second brochure was color and had a card in it with payscale for various ranks, I think a private was around RH$200 or so a month. I shoulda kept one set back dammit! Oh well. Smile


    Chris
