Sophisticated mercenaries! Some were here before UDI, many have come since – detained or drawn by the spoils to be had. Unscrupulous and without any sense of patriotism. In effect – subversive! They couldn’t care a b….r about Rhodesia – that’s beyond doubt. All of which I am frequently told is just human nature and that in Rhodesia it is no worse and no better than elsewhere. What a pity. We used to be different, we used to be better – that was our strength.
