Rhodesia during the period of UDI (Universal Declaration of Independence) lasted for a very

short period of time - to be exact 1965 to 1980. However, Rhodesia itself was formed during

the 1890's.

The armed forces had a variety of uniforms and I came across in a tube, this series of uniforms

for different parts of the Forces. They are drawings and the artist was obviously selling the set.

His initials are AJB 75 - should anyone be able to identify him - please post details.

There are three sections - Band , Infantry and Officers. I will show the drawing and repeat the date underneath each one for clarity. Apart from interest, I thought they would be good to help with

research.

BAND
