The 53rd Anniversary of the Rhodesian Rebellion against Britain – Cartoon: What is a Rhodesian?
[Vic Mckenzie was the best cartoonist in Rhodesia, in our tiny tribe of 250,000 whites. I see that he drew this up in 2012. There was another cartoonist who was well known in Rhodesia, he was called “Spud”. He did cartoons about Rhodesian Farmers, for the Rhodesian Farmer magazine. Spud is of course a play on the word potato. I’ve still got stacks of Spud cartoons that I’ve never published.
The Rhodesians still exist and the average age of the Rhodesians in South Africa is 78. But they still do things among their small community and there’s a tiny colony of Rhodesian pensioners in the little town of Stilfontein in South Africa, near Klerksdorp.
The 11th November 2018 was the memory of the day we, the whites of Rhodesia, rebelled illegally against Britain. It is a day we celebrate. Jan]
