How does one ever erase the hurt and the scars?
Like the chalk on a black board the remnant powder remains
No matter how faint it may become, the black board remains “scarred”
Such is the History of War – years pass but the pain remains forever
We are scarred for life!

People e mail me and say that this war and Rhodesia is not relevant anymore. This is not true to us who lived and died for what we thought was right.
We were left to be savaged by our own kinsmen the dammed British- as per Breaker Morants words to the Brits "SHOOT STRAIGHT YOU BASTARDS"............Beaver Shaw
