Rhodesian Remembrance Service 2017

Rhodesian Remembrance UK

Rhodesian Remembrance services are becoming quite rare. For those interested enough to look, they do take place all over the world.

The Rhodesian Pioneer Club hosts the annual July Braai in the UK.  This event typically takes place during the last weekend in July.

The July Braai, a weekend camping getaway, caters for all ages, & offers a chance for old-fashioned fun. It also raises much-needed funds to support pensioners in Zimbabwe.

Children enjoy egg & spoon & bean bag races, fancy dress competitions & tugs o’ war. Adults buy from the stalls, throw a line in the pond, dance the night away & swap stories. They talk about life, the war, then & now, future plans & network to find old friends & catch up on news. Mostly they hang out with old friends, meet new ones, laugh, drink anything from Castle to Cream Soda & enjoy tasty, familiar food.

Rhodesian Remembrance

A remembrance service takes place on Sunday, after a fun-filled weekend. It provides a short but important opportunity to remember the fallen & those who have passed away after hostilities ended.

The following videos show this year’s service which includes the names of people lost during the past year, a poem by Alf Hutchison & a tribute.
