I would like anyone who has any stories or photographs on Rhodesian Fireforce activities or even having snaps of helicopters or ff deployments to allow me to possibly use in my Choppertech book, time is short as I have chosen a publisher and my manuscripts are being edited. I still have a few stories to add prior to the book being completed and can fit in any stories or photographs of note.
I am trying to get the story of fireforce out there as accuratley as possible.
Have a look in those dusty trunks.
I am interested in any stories or information on the RAR as I have had many queries about them from researchers and Universities reading this blog.
I am also interested in any interesting facts on Rhodesia related to the war years from all sides of the spectrum. I know many people read this blog from those days and I appeal to you to assist to keep the memories going before it all goes to dust, our story should be told for younger generations to learn from, mistakes and all.

This website is dedicated to all those who died in that long and brutal war in Rhodesia.
