Rhodesian Guard Force
site is for the benefit of all ex Members of the Rhodesian Guard Force
and is dedicated to the memory of all personnel of the Rhodesian Forces
who were killed in the conflict 1966-1981.
Guard Force Introduction.
This website has one purpose only and that is to attract
fellow ex-Members of the Rhodesian Guard
Force to use their memories, stories and resources to help build an everlasting
‘virtual’ monument to those friends who never returned.
History (especially military history), can be all but a
collective memory of those either involved in the process, or who have direct
experience of it. They say the first casualty of war is truth, what this site
seeks to promote and highlight is the great efforts made by the members of this
unit. The reasons for the effort is vast but we desire it be told….only the ex
Members can provide those snippets of information for the benefit of their
brothers in arms, and for the interest of future generations.
We only seek information in the forms of photographs,
anecdotes, memorabilia etc that you may wish to share with ex-combatants.
'The protection of the
non-combatant in Rhodesia': this
was the ‘raison d’etre of the Rhodesian
Guard Force during the Bush War in Rhodesia. (1976-1980)
