Wikipedia Entry on the BSA Police:
The Wikipedia entry on the BSA Police provides a broad, rather too brief and not always accurate, history of the force, which is being constantly modified by contributors who sway with political leaning. Former members should visit this link, review the content and attempt to correct content where the truth has been evaded by the original authors.

Rhodesian Forces

Rhodesian Forces:
This site set up by the Rhodesia Army Association has pages dedicated to the BSA Police, amongst other units which made up the armed services of Rhodesia. It has a useful noticeboard page, which could be updated a little more frequently. One concern is the BSA police Roll of Honour presented on the pages of this site. The Web Administrator could attempt to correct some of the errors on this listing, or simply make reference to the official Roll of Honour on the BSA Police website.

C Squadron - The Rhodesian SAS:
The official web site of the Rhodesia SAS (C Squadron) Regimental Association is a tribute to this fine regiment which provides a little history and listings of honours and awards, a roll of honour, and a nominal roll of former members of the regiment.

Prison Services of Rhodesia:
Wayne Kennerly has put together an interesting site to record the former Rhodesian Prison Service on the web. As he says in its introduction, this site 'fills a gap' in the plethora of information about the Rhodesians on the internet. Many will know of Wayne's interested in uniforms and memorabilia, which he extends to his new site.

General

If you have a site you wish to recommend, then please pass this onto the Web Administrator and include with this link a couple of sentences describing the site and your rating of it. Please report any broken links found on this page.

We are yet to establish a rating system for websites recommended on this page, so you are at the mercy of the Web Administrator's taste for web sites. Sites, in his humble opinion, are:

  • Worth Bookmarking: suggests your regular return to a newsworthy site which is being continually updated;
  • Worth a Visit: an interesting site which will bring back a few memories and help with your research;
  • Do not Write Home About It: probably has some BSA Police content, but overall could be little more comprehensive.

You, the visitor to this site, will be the judge and your recommendations with a rating would be welcome.
