Nice groups :love:

It seems that the SC is of poor quality - no enamel, only painted and laquered ?

I`ve quit collecting Rhodesian/Zimbabwe stuff. Just sold my last RGSM to a KiA of the RLI at DNW July-auction.

You can`t collect everything - unfortunately :(

Kevin,

Try these links from Antonio Prieto's great website on ribbons:

Hope this does the trick.

Would any one be able to tell if the ribbon chart is in the order of precedence? I note there is a fair amount of variation in the order the medals in some of the photos are worn ?

I believe that is an SCZ attached to a BCZ ribbon ? Is the BCZ not also a purple color ?

Captain

Welcome to the GMIC and thank you for posting the ribbon chart.  I notice that at least one post on page 1 of this forum refers to someone - President Mugabe perhaps - wearing his medals in the wrong order, so my guess would be that the chart shows the correct order of precedence and that photos of the medals being worn which show a different order are due to errors by the wearers.  Not an uncommon occurrence in many countries.

I also notice a reference in a chat between 'RhodesianMilitary' and 'Shauma', also pon page 1, to the 'Zimbabwe Medal Society'.  It was apparently founded by a Keith Holshausen and the late Wing Commander Peter Cooke, founding chairman of the Zimbabwe Medal Society.  Keith is also a member of the OMSA but I suspect that if you contacted either Rhodesian Military or Shauma - click on their names on page 1- they would be happy to tell you how to join that group and perhAPS answer other questions you may have.

Peter
