Rhodesian Remembrance 2018 UK

Rhodesian Remembrance is observed at the annual July Braai, an event hosted by the Rhodesian Pioneer Club (UK). It took place on 29 July this year.

The Rhodesian remembrance service included an understated talk that is far too topical in the world today. It was more “Now we” than “When we”. It touched on topics like PTSD, Combat Stress (delayed or otherwise) & the importance of talking & reaching out. There might be more awareness around these issues today compared to the Bush War era, but I get mail from people all over the world who struggle but are unlikely to reach out. If you are ex-services & reading this, please checkout the Rhodesian Ex Combatant interviews & the section on PTSD & let me know if you have anything to add that might be useful to others? Many people could use a hand in this regard, & veterans are the only people who might help. 

July Braai

The service followed a festive weekend of camping & family fun. All age groups were catered for, & attractions included

  • Stalls
  • Book signings
  • Jumping Castles
  • Fancy Dress
  • Children’s Games Day
  • Disco
  • Braai Fires
  • Bar


The lunar eclipse was a bit of a disappointment as it obscured by clouds, but nobody seemed to mind. Beautiful sunshine & wide open green spaces kept the children happy, while pet dogs kept their humans busy with long walks and battles over biltong.

The event was well supported & well-managed. The Rhodesian Pioneer Club supports the Zimbabwe Pensioner Support Fund. 

The ZPSF do an amazing job with limited resources, & under challenging conditions. They have different campaigns running to raise funds for this volunteer driven outreach program. Please visit their site & donate what you can if you support their aims & work.

    Point taken. Thank you, Ross, for your prompt response.
    My daughter also raises Guinea Fowl on the ‘lifestyle’ block in Northlands, New Zealand – – and I will have her take a second look in case she would like to order a copy.
    Thank you kindly.

    My books are not too expensive and are based upon the editor recommended price in the European market, in addition to the International Marketplace. Your books are likely to be marketed from South Africa and therefore they’d have their own prices and be “cheaper” in your eyes. I’ve sold many books and nobody has ever complained about he prices. Thank you.

    Great spotlight page(s) of all your Lulu books.
    I liked your Chipinge and Guinea Fowl books – but found them too expensive!
