I served in Fort Victoria Nuanetsi and was then transfered to SB Ops at Bikita. Joined CID and was sent to Bulaway. Was sent to Wankie being the last single white DSO left in the Province! Transfered to Bindura from where I left the force. I joined Rio Tinto and served at various of their Mines and operations before leaving for the United Kingdom in 2002. It would be great to hear from anyone with whom I served and I would particularly like to hear from any squadmates.
