THE BRITISH WASHED THIER HANDS

Britain was not much help to Rhodesia in her time of need and did her utmost to rid herself of the Colony which the British considered as the Sergeants mess of all her colonies.
She forgot all those brave Airmen and Soldiers both black and white who gave thier lives in the Boer War, World War 1 and World War 2. Bomber Arthur Harris O/C Bomber Command in WW 2 was a Rhodesian (shunned by Royalty after the war, as Britain battled to come to terms with what she did to Germany with the Boming campaign of WW2 )
Britain was quick to wash her hands of Rhodesia and sent Prince Charles to Rufaro stadium to watch the Union jack being ripped down in shame.
Soames loafed around Government House in Salisbury in the last days of reasonable rule and even had an abortive trip attempting to shoot a Buffalo which ended up in failure.
At least it was not the Green and White which we fought so hard for!!!!!
