I was at the unveiling of the RAR Monument at the Arboretum recently and there was a new book on sale by Capt Andy Telfer 2RAR and Capt Russell Fulton 1RAR.
A very interesting read for those interested in the Rhodesian Bush War. It gives you the nitty gritty of Fire Force contacts as well as other operations. It also includes daily life of a subby in the RAR.
Chibaya Moyo, ‘Strike to the Heart’ in Shona, is an anthology of stories and anecdotes from those who served with the masodja, the all-volunteer black soldiers of the Rhodesian African Rifles, a proud African regiment that fought with distinction in two world wars, the Malayan Emergency and the Rhodesian bush war. Chibaya Moyo brings together so many voices with tales of such vastly differing topics that it is by turn fascinating, tragic, humorous, intense, sad and inspirational; above all though it is honest.
Available from 30 Degrees South. Well done Andy and Russell.
Also on sale on the day was the RNR/RAR Book of Remembrance by Gerry van Tonder. An excellent read and remembrance of the RNR/RAR. Well done Gerry.
