May 2003 Edition.


May 2003 edition

Following the West's glorious victory in Iraq (a conflict which, as we predicted, resulted in far fewer casualties and a far quicker outcome than the anti-war Left prophesied - indeed the "resistance" in Baghdad proved more like Warmington-on-Sea than Stalingrad!), the big question now is what should happen to the newly-liberated Iraq?

The interim allied administration headed by Gen. Jay Garner is a good first step, but all concerned seem to regard this as simply a temporary measure. Much talk has been made of Ahmad Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress coming to power, and some have also suggested the restoration of the Iraqi monarchy. Both these developments would certainly be in the interests of the West and would advance pro-Western influence in the middle east, but how stable would such administrations turn out to be? The Arab world - particularly Iraq - is notoriously subject to coups and revolutions (most of which being fundamentalist Islamic in nature), so the possibility of a second Saddam Hussein usurping power in the years ahead is a very real threat.

As a neo-Imperialist movement we would strongly advocate that Iraq reverts to a Protectorate status, which it enjoyed from 1914 to 1932 (during which period, incidentally, the RAF under the command of that great Rhodesian Arthur "Bomber" Harris destroyed the bandit gangs who had been terrorising the ordinary Iraqi people for centuries.) Of course there is little colonial tradition in the United States because of its very nature, so as the only other significant nation to contribute troops and wherewithal to the liberation of Iraq it would therefore fall upon Britain to resume the Mandate of 1919/1932.

By reverting to Protectorate status the Iraqi people would gain by having an ongoing non-corrupt civil power not be subject to overthrow by any dictator, Britain would gain by regaining a colony of considerable wealth, and the whole of the middle east - particularly Israel - would gain by increased stability in the region. In fact there would seem to be no losers except for would-be Islamic tyrants.

Alas, however, there is very little possibility of such a state of affairs coming about under the Tony Blair's government, as he possesses neither the vision nor the political daring. After all, when an even more ideal opportunity for re-colonisation presented itself in Sierra Leone during the late 1990s this chance was lost. Recent events in Iraq have however confirmed that when a leader with the necessary will does eventually emerge in Britain (and in the other great nation-states of western Europe for that matter) then the task of resuming civilising colonial responsibilities around the globe will be a relatively easy one.

Meanwhile we have learnt with great sadness of two southern Africans who had volunteered to serve with the British forces who made the supreme sacrifice during the War in Iraq. Sholto Hedenskog, 27, from Pretoria joined the Royal Marines after studying at Rhodes University where he obtained a B.Sc. degree. He was one of the eight British and four American soldiers who were killed when a US Marine Corps CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter came down during deployment operations in southern Iraq. Christopher Muzvura, 21, a Black Zimbabwean who served as a Piper in the Irish Guards, was killed by a sniper in Basra. We salute the courage and heroism of these two brave volunteers who died ensuring the freedom and security of us all.



We are pleased to be able to announce that details for the Springbok Club's annual Empire Day buffet have now been finalised, and that the Guest of Honour will be Mr. Albert Poggio MBE. Mr. Poggio is the official UK Representative of the Government of Gibraltar, and will report on the current situation in Gibraltar following the overwhelming vote by the citizens of the Rock to remain British last November. Details of this event are as follows:-

Date : Saturday 24th May 2003

Time : 18.30 hrs for 19.00 hrs

Venue : The MORPETH ARMS (the upstairs Function Room), 58 Millbank, Westminster, London SW1 (close to the Tate Gallery and Vauxhall Bridge - nearest tube station: Pimlico).

A splendid array of buffet-snacks will be provided for all who attend, and we anticipate that the evening will be concluded by a display of close-up magic by the conjuror Bruce Munton.

Admission charges will be £5.00 per head for Life, Honorary and Full Members of the Springbok Club, £7.50 per head for Associate Members, and £10.00 for non-members. Although payment may be made on the night it would help to gauge numbers if all those wishing to attend could inform us in advance.

The London Branch of the Springbok Club held a most successful meeting last month, which was addressed by Mr. Roy Painter. In a wide-ranging speech Mr. Painter explained why the War in Iraq was necessary, and then went on to remind everyone of the others dangers which still face the West, most notably "political correctness" and third world immigration. He ended on an optimistic note however, telling of his faith in the younger generation, and how with no prompting his own grandchildren were adopting his own patriotic sentiments.

We are happy to be able to announce that Mr. Bill Binding has been elected the new Chairman of the London Branch of the Springbok Club.

The Chilterns Branch of the Springbok Club will be holding an informal pub gathering at "The Bell", Frogmoor, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire (10 minutes walk from High Wycombe railway station) on Saturday 31st May. This pub has a reputation for good food and real ales, and boast a small paved patio which can be used if the weather is suitable. This will take place during the late afternoon and early evening, and although there will be no hard-and-fast start time we expect people will start arriving from about 15.00 hrs onwards. Springbok Club Organiser Robert Shipley will be attending, and will give an overview of his thoughts concerning the situation in southern Africa today.

The Kent Branch will also be holding their annual summer braai at Minster on the Isle of Sheppey on Saturday 28th June. Fuller details will be given in next month's SCN.



Details of the next London Swinton Circle meeting are as follows:-

Date : Monday 12th May 2003

Time : 18.45 hrs for 19.00 hrs.

Venue : The Function Room, The Red Lion, 48 Parliament Street, Westminster, London SW1. (a block away from the Houses of Parliament - nearest tube station: Westminster.)


Mr. Delderfield is founder and National Chairman of the New Britain Party and editor of their monthly journal, and for 18 years he was a member of the Court of Common Council of the City of London. His talk will centre on Commonwealth issues, particularly the monarchy, Gibraltar, Zimbabwe and links with Canada and Australia.

Malcolm Wren, the "Engelse Boer", will be doing a 150 mile walk across southern England in July/August. He will be placing 1500 ribbons - 10 per mile - for each person, each Soul, murdered in the vicious farm attacks in South Africa. The purpose of this exercise is to draw attention to the Afrikaner Genocide currently taking place.

Since 1994 more than 1400 South African farmers have been murdered, and 50% of farmers have permanently left farming as a result of these ongoing attacks. Murder is the only motive, as in 95% of attacks nothing was stolen. Whilst it is not only the Afrikaner farmers who are being murdered, but also other Ethnic-Europeans as well as tribal Black farmers, Afrikaners make up over 90% of those murdered. The actual number per capita is still increasing, and now stands at 311 per 100,000. There is strong evidence to show that these attacks are politically motivated.

The world however remains oddly silent. Maybe we are partly to blame for not showing the world what is happening? With his "Soul Walk" Malcolm hopes to alter this silence - by raising awareness.

The "Soul Walk" will start on Sunday 27th July at Avonmouth, Bristol, and Malcolm will walk approximately 13 miles each day for 12 days, ending at Gravesend, Kent on 7th August, i.e. from the Severn to the Thames - from the west to the east of England.

If there is anyone willing to accompany Malcolm along the route (either partly or in full) this would be greatly appreciated.

At the present moment Malcolm is still looking for overnight accommodation on the following nights at the following places:-

26th July - Avonmouth
29th July - Quemerford, near Calne, Wiltshire
30th July - Marlborough, Wiltshire
1st August - Aldermaston Warf, Berkshire
3rd August - Sunningdale, Berkshire
4th August - Hounslow/Teddington/Twickenham area
6th August - Bexley, Kent

If you can help Malcolm in this regard please e-mail him at:



Rodger Graeme writes to confirm that he will again be hosting a "Rhodie Reunion" at the Johannesburg Social Club on November 11th this year. Fuller details will be included in future editions of the SCN.

"WAY OUT OF LINE" by Trisha Jackson is a novel which tells the story of the profound impact that an innocent youthful love affair has on the lives of two young lovers. The plot moves from a cult and a maximum security prison in the US to the savannah grasslands of Mozambique and Zimbabwe - this makes for adventure, suspense and melodrama. Packed with conflict and sexual tension, anyone who loves romance, passion and excitement should enjoy reading this story.

Trisha Jackson was born and grew up in Rhodesia. She immigrated to the USA with her husband and three children in 1990. She and her husband live in a unique, rural community in the Tonto National Forest in the eastern mountains of Arizona.

Search for Carol Appleton.

Next year (2004) will witness the 60th Anniversary of the invasion of Normandy and planning is now underway to put on Anniversary Celebrations and Memorial Services by City
Authorities and French WWII Veteran Associations. The Veterans Association (ANSA - Assoc. Normande du Souvenir Aerian) are heavily involved and one of their main tributes will be dedicated to the approximate 200 Typhoon Pilots killed during the Normandy Campaign. This tribute will be focused on Group Captain Charles Appleton, the senior pilot of this group, who was originally understood to be Rhodesian. Research was hampered by the fact that the identify of his 'next of kin' could not be established, with the result that access to official RAF Records was denied. Charles Appleton's wife, son and daughter emigrated to Marandellas, Southern Rhodesia some time after he was killed (12 Aug 1944). The last survivor of the family was the daughter, Carol Appleton. She attended Girls High School (GHS) in Salisbury from 1946 to 1950. A GHS Old Girl has stated: "There was only one other child, Carol, with whom I was at school, but she was not a close companion of mine. I think she married a guy from the British Army, this would have been in the mid-50's, but I have not kept in touch. She would be about 70-72 by now, if still alive. I think she lived in the UK, but I don't know her married name or where she may have lived, except that at some time she and her husband probably were in an Army establishment." The GHS Old Girls Association in Harare [Salisbury] has been contacted, but without any success.

If someone could help locating Carol Appleton and/or any children, this would put "the icing on the cake" for ANSA. They would receive a special invitation to attend the services and celebrations as honoured guests, all arrangements will be undertaken by ANSA, and royal treatment will be guaranteed. Perhaps there is someone out there somewhere, maybe a GHS Old Girl or ex-resident of Marandellas, who knew Carol Appleton and who would know what happened to her after leaving school - and more importantly, her married name.

No.54a : Mr. KEITH THOMPSON of Marlow (cont.)

In last month's SCN we featured Mr. Keith Thompson, formerly from Marlow in Buckinghamshire, in our "Where are they Now?" column. We have since been informed that the correct name of the traditionalist English group he was a leading member of was the "Royal Society of St.George", and not the "League of St.George" as we erroneously stated. More importantly, however, we have also been informed that he now lives at Hockley, near Southend in Essex - but unfortunately we still don't know his full address. Can anyone help?



In the March edition of the SCN we reported on the excellent speech which Peter Robinson MP, the Deputy-Leader of the Democratic Unionist Party, had recently given to the London Swinton Circle.

The DUP run an excellent award-winning and highly informative web-site which is maintained by Peter Robinson's son Jonathan. It is well worth a visit, and can be accessed at:-

Many people here have mentioned the words of Enoch Powell and realise that we now have that "enemy within", as do all White countries. The atrocities in the USA would not have occurred if the enemy had not been invited to live there. A typical example of the stupidity of politicians is the Moslem soldier with the US forces in Iraq (was he a conscript?) who threw a grenade killing at least one US soldier.

Here on the Gold Coast we already have a mosque and a few days ago the cleric was spewing his hate against the coalition forces. Now if I get up and mildly criticise him I would be labelled a racist by the traitors in the news media.

I have had a lengthy conversation with an aquaintance who is a Kurdish refugee. He asked me about the 'anti-war' protestors, and wanted to know why they support this evil regime. He said that supporting Saddam is like supporting Hitler or Stalin. I'm afraid I had to confess that many of my fellow countrymen are not evil, just incredibly STUPID!

Any true Muslim believer cannot commit himself to "the state". A true believer is committed to God and his duty is to God as laid down in the Koran and Tawhid. Sadly but perhaps inevitably in today's PC society the truth must be suppressed. Sometimes of course commentators and politicians are ignorant of the facts. The implications are frightening and perhaps the birds are coming home to roost. It is impossible for a true believer to integrate into any western/liberal society. The values and practices
commonplace in, for example, the UK and USA are anathema to Islam and the work of Satan. To suggest that Jesus Christ was the son of God is blasphemy as is to suggest that man was created in God's image. It is forbidden for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim and remain within the faith (she will lose her family) or for a Muslim man to marry a non-Muslim unless she converts to Islam. There are many other factors that prevent integration and assimilation. Of course Islam like all/most religions is losing its appeal and many young Muslims in Western societies embrace capitalism, however the underlying issues and conflicts of loyalties will not go away. How many Muslims serve in the USA/UK armed forces or Police forces? What would they do if they did serve and were required to fight against fellow Muslims? Very late in the day our security services have woken from their slumbers and realised the dangers.

Yours etc.,

Paul Rhodes, London, U.K.



We recently received an e-mail from someone named Tim Vaux which simply asked for more details about our organisation in the title, but no text whatsoever.

Tim Vaux is however a name well known to us. His father, Martin Vaux, owned the Black Cock [sic] Inn at Molland in north Devon where the notorious White Rhino Club meeting of June 1993 which was sabotaged by the wretched Mark Cotterill (see January SCN) was staged. Indeed it was Cotterill, evidently a personal friend of Vaux jnr., who recommended this establishment to us, assuring us that the proprietors shared our own patriotic and pro-Rhodesian sentiments. This did not turn out to be the case however. Vaux snr. turned out to be a fully paid-up member of the Liberal Democrat Party, whereas conversely Vaux jnr. was a member of the neo-fascist BNP! Both however openly voiced opposition to the then recent first Gulf War - unpatriotic sentiments which certainly didn't go down too well with the WRC supporters present!

Vaux jnr. subsequently wrote to us on several occasions using the pseudonym of Edward First. This surname, of course, was the maiden name of the communist-terrorist Joe Slovo's wife, Ruth First - which perhaps says a lot about where Vaux's true sympathies lie!

We have also recently been informed that the wretched Cotterill himself, who has returned to the UK after being refused permission to remain in the US (apparently because of his overt neo-Nazi activities), has been trying to re-contact old acquaintances. Needless to say both the Vaux's and Cotterill should be avoided like the plague!
